There is nothing like having a great meal with great wine. Even better is to go out for dinner and have your wines and food already paired for you. Wednesday March 9 at 7:30pm at Miami Beach’s La Moderna is hosting a special wine dinner featuring wines that span from the north of Italy to Italy’s south.
This dinner has been put together by Italian wine specialist Renato Spanu and La Moderna’s chef Antonio Borriello. Renato also makes wine in his native Sardinia and this dinner will feature one of his wines, a real treat. Besides the food and wine, the other great thing is the price of this special dinner, $69 plus tax and gratuity.
Wine Pairing Dinner Menu Starter:
Tartar Di Branzino with tomato concasse and stracciatella (Franciacorta, Farghenttina 2010, Lombrardi)
Appetizer: Carpaccio Di Ricciola with pistacchio and green apple (Vermentino, Jankara 2013, Sardinia)
