Rinuccini’s Featured Wines for April
At Ristorante Rinuccini, we offer exclusive Italian wine, imported directly from our home surrounds of Lazio on the west coast of Italy. Each wine is handpicked by us from the very best local vineyards. Italian wines are like Italian people; rustic, lively and full of passion. We house our wine in our custom built wine cellar, under the floor of our upper dining area. The cellar is visible from the dining room through special glass portals built into the floor.
We believe that Italian wine is always the best pairing with any food and we’d like to help you to choose the perfect wine for your meal with our series of featured wines. This month we’re featuring two wines, new to our house wine menu. Both wines are from the Cantina Sant’Andrea vineyard in the Lazio region of Italy. It is a family run vineyard that prides itself on family values and traditions while also using innovation and experimentation to produce high quality wines.
The white is a Moscato Seco del Lazio I.G.T. 2015. This is a beautiful classic dry Moscato, the lustrous colour ushers in nuances of fresh fruit made even more interesting by notes of citrus, shades of vanilla, and a lovely long finish. We recommend with fish, risotto and as an aperitif.
The red is a Cabernet Sauvignon I.G.T. 2015. This is a vivid dark violet red colour with a fruity bouquet. It is rich in elegant notes of blackberry, cacoa and pencil lead. The palate is soft, long and structured with unobtrusive tannin. Excellent with meat, game and aged cheese.
Both wines are available as part of our selection of Italian house wines.
