Matteo’s Tuscan Wine Dinner

Appetizers – baked Bruschetta with vegetables crudo.

First Course

Fagioli Bianco – white Pasta Fagioli with clams

Bianco, Podere Le Caggiole, IGT Toscana – The grapes after a slight cold pressing, are launched in a slow fermentation with natural yeasts paying careful attention to the temperature of fermentation, always kept very low, as not to compromise the fragrance and freshness of the grapes. The Bianco has an intense straw yellow color with the scents reminiscent of exotic fruits, but maintain the territorial character of the grapes used. The taste is pleasant and has a good persistence in the mouth, is well balanced and it’s a wine of many occasions going well with pasta and fish dishes, a lot of white meat, and various cheeses.

Second Course

Sirloin Salata Fattoria - grilled sirloin, mixed greens, craisins, goat cheese, egg, balsamic vinaigrette

Fossilia, Fattoria Dei Fossili, IGT – 90 acres of rolling hills are the perfect place to express the Montalcino territory with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and of course the Sangiovese Grosso that produces Brunello di Montalcino that has made the area famous. This wine is produced from organic farming with the health of the soil and grapes paramount to the success of the wine making. It was the discovery of beautiful fossils in the soil that has given the winemaker a responsibility to care for the soil and not to poison it with pesticides. The wine is complex with intense notes of cherry, violet and plum. It is well balanced and shows an elegant and silky finish.

Third Course

Short Rib Montepulciano – 24 hour braised beef short rib, with a demi glace rosso on a bed of creamy polenta. 

Rosso di Montepulciano, Podere Le Caggiole This wine, even if young, has a superb structure and shows a regional character like all wines produced in Montepulciano. It is brilliant in color with a ruby red and touch of purple. To the nose, there is a fine intensity and fragrance, in which can be recognized the scents of small red fruits (red currant and cherry) with a light touch of Coscia di Monaca, the typical plumy of Montepulciano, and can be detected a light trace of spices. It appears harmonious and round, with good strength and an evident acidity, which contributes to freshness.

Fourth Course

Meatloaf Maritato - Italian style meatloaf with braised vegetables served on a bed of escarole with roasted garlic mashed potatoes.

Maritato, Podere La Vigne, IGT Toscana - This wine is brought to you from renowned Brunello producer from Montalcino. It’s 70% Sangiovese and 30% Merlot. The wine is aged in oak barrels for six months. It’s a full bodied wine with floral fragrances. Palate is composed of floral and fruity flavors of cherries and mulberry. The wine is soft, clean, with rich aromas of red fruits and is smooth with a lingering finish.
