The Famous Italian Wines & Canapes evening takes place at Up & Above Bar on 12 March 2020
Join us for a night of superlative Italian flavours at Up & Above Bar as we sample wonderful free-flow wines from famous Italian vineyards and delicious canapes inspired by the old country.
The wine tasting begins with a canape of shrimp tartar, yuzu gel and togarashi served with La Valentina’s 2018 Trebbiano d’Abruzzo, followed by baked mussel pie, thyme and pecorino gratin enjoyed with La Valentina’s 2018 Pecorino Colline Pescaresi IGT.
Then comes veal osobuco and pappardelle matched with a 2014 Ridolfi Brunello di Montalcino DOCG from Tuscany, a rich braised Charolais cheek ravioli with sage butter accompanied by La Valentina’s 2016 Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, before a decadent ending of salami Milano and stracciatella cones with walnut crisp served with a La Valentina’s 2015 Spelt Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Riserva. Fine wines from the Lazio and Puglia regions will also be served.
