About the wines, taste any 3:
Venetian Hills Asolo Prosecco Superiore DOCG: Intense characters from sunny hillside vines. Light, lemon color with minute bubbles, aromas of citrus fruits and flowers. A crisp, fresh Prosecco with a balanced complexity and a delicate finish. Best enjoyed with a light fare or while relaxing.
Pietro Nera “La Novella” Nebbiolo Bianco 2019 Alpi Retiche IGT: White wine from Nebbiolo? Certainly! This blend of Nebbiolo (80%), Chardonnay, and locally historic Rossola comes from the Valtellina region of Italy, near the Swiss border. Crisp, fresh fruit and delicate minerality. Pair with risotto, young cheese, cured meats, and an outdoor view.
Audarya Monica di Sardegna DOC 2019: Our choice for a versatile, food-friendly red wine. Pair with seafood, poultry, red meat, pizza, grilled or roasted vegetables. Medium body with good complexity. An ancient varietal unique to Sardinia; produced with love and dedication by the Pala family.
Rocca Nero di Troia 2019 Puglia IGT: Great value, off the beaten path. A very deep ruby red hue with notes of ripe red fruits and cherries with hints of spices and tobacco, this wine showcases Puglia’s high quality, indigenous Nero di Troia. This wine is perfect for lamb and pork dishes!
We hope to see you at Simpatico in our outdoor courtyard "Piazza" to explore these amazing wines! Cin Cin!
