Wine Speak "Flavors of Italy"
with Rick Lilley & Specialty Wine Importer Donato Loperfido
Chef/Importer Donato Loperfido brings Italy 's captivating terroir to life in an evening of passionate wines. Savor the minerality and earthiness of Sicily 's vineyards terraced into an active volcano and the delicate tannins of the Nebbiolo grape cultivated in a glacial moraine. Enjoy a textural finish with power and finesse drawn from Tuscany 's ancient limestone in San Felice's Grand Select Chianti Classico and paired with Chef Jason Schoonover's boldly flavored menu.
Seating is limited for both nights.
