A Salute to Italy with Irv and Giovanni’s, Dinner
May 18, 2019 @ 1:30 pmSOLD OUT
Irv and Karin Lingo throw one heck of an Italian festa (that’s Italian for party). And with each offering, they take it up a notch. On Saturday May 18, 2019, eight amici (that’s Italian for friends) will gather at Giovanni’s for an evening celebrating the best of Italian vino e cibo (that’s Italian for wine and food)!
After the obligatory Krug palate opener, you’ll jump into an Antinori’s flagship white wine, Cervaro della Sala 2015. Then, you’ll spring into a 2007 Amarone della Valpolicella from Dal Forno for the pasta course. Up next are the undisputed stars of the Super Tuscan world, Ornellaia and Masseto (2004 and 2000 respectively). You’ll finish with the King and Queen of Piemonte, a 1996 Barbaresco Asili from Giacosa and a 1998 Barolo Monfortino from Giacomo Conterno. Oh, and we can’t have dessert without a Sauternes!
