The Italian joie de vivre starts around the kitchen island and the oven. With a befitting musical soundtrack, let’s start cooking, with a glass of the vibrant Alois Lageder Riff in hand. Let’s chop, taste, talk and rectify the seasoning. Supper will taste great! Come on, let’s go, time to get all dressed up.
When everyone looks their best, it’s aperitif time! The chilled Mionetto Prosecco awaits. Its bubbles and its freshness will awaken your taste buds and perfectly complement the prosciutto and melon bites, without forgetting smoked salmon blinis, that have nothing to do with Italy, but are so tasty with this sparkling wine.
The "primo piatto" (first course) is served, let’s all sit down at the table! The pasta is al dente and the "alla Bolognese" sauce brings out the best of the Pian delle Vigne Rosso di Montalcino from the renowned Antinori estate. The atmosphere is festive, that’s the reward, we did great in the kitchen!
The aromas from the ‘’secondo piatto’’ are irresistible in the house, and the second bottle of red is in a decanter. Along with its side of meat arancinis, the "bistecca alla Fiorentina" (Florentine steak) is magnificent and the Guado Al Tasso Il Bruciato Bolgheri cuvee from Antinori is in everyone’s glass. Everything’s perfect, isn’t this the most amazing meal in town?
Of course, let’s save some room for the "dolce" (dessert). There is a beautiful fruit centerpiece on the table, along with tiramisu for those with a sweet tooth, and ‘’caffè corretto’’ adds to the experience. Italians love to ‘’correct’’ their coffee with alcohol, and Vecchia Romagna, an Italian brandy, is never very far.
