Best of Antinori

Featured Menu by Chef Jon Krinn

November 30 @ 6:30 p.m.


First Course: Pennsylvania Organic Rabbit Stew

with Umbria white wine braised carrot, radish, farro

*Paired with Cervaro della Sala
Named for the family who owned this Umbrian castle in the 1300s, this stately blend chose the
elegance and complexity of the grounds. Chardonnay and Grechetto grapes come together during
malolactic fermentation and barrique aging to create a greenish-hued straw color, cedar notes and
a palate of lemon butter and vanilla-tinged mimosa. Enjoy now or up to several years later.

Second Course: Roasted Chestnut Ravioli

*Paired with Antinori Guado al Tasso
A ruby red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc that offers sweet spice, toasted
oak and earthy tannins. Produced in the Bolgheri region, the soils have clay, loam, and sand deposits
with some larger rocks known as "scheletro" With exceptional aging potential, this wine will present
more plush with softened fruits and refined tannins as time goes on. Amazing for the wintry season.

Third Course: Roasted Wild Boar

spaghetti squash and black truffle


*Paired with Tignanello
Among the first of the "Super Tuscans," this Sangiovese partners with Cabernet Sauvignon and
Cabernet Franc after barrique-aging to drive an eye-catching garnet color and aromatic
complexity: find violets among cherries and rose blossom in the nose followed by mocha notes and a
pleasant mouthfeel punched up with an herbaceous undertone.

Fourth Course: Chocolate Sambuca Crescionda


*paired with Muffato della Sala
This dessert-friendly wine blends five different white grapes purposely affected by noble rot to
reduce the water content of the grapes. Such development results in an unmistakable flavor
composition featuring apricots, peaches and citrus florals that leave an ethereal aftertaste.
