Recommended Wine Pairing

Ca dei Frati I Frati Lugana DOC Lombardia

per glass         490++       per bottle    2,600++

Aromas of mature pear, citrus, and white spring flowers form the delicately enticing nose. The savory palate offers gooseberry, white peach, and juicy grapefruit alongside tangy acidity. It closes on a white almond note. It pairs well with soft cheeses and white and cured fish.

La Bragaia IGT, Allegrini, Veneto                           

Glass 440++                 Bottle 2,200++

A real jewel with a full body, powerful on the nose, rounded, and pleasant on the finish. Medium acidity and balanced tannins with hints of red and dark fruits like cherry and plum. Spicy and earthy notes on the palate. This complex wine becomes more generous after some time of aeration.
