WINEMAKER: Melissa Apter Castro: Antinori (Chianti) and Antica Antinori (Napa Estate). Named Most Exciting winemaker 2016  

WHAT WE TASTED: Opulent with a fresh bouquet of honeysuckle, melon and lemon with an underlying layer of nuttiness reminding us of smoked hazelnut from perfectly integrated French Oak. Graceful, full bodied and lavish mouthfeel and long finish balanced by minerality and acidity of 40 year old vines.

  • Thai chicken and rice noodle salad, with kaffir lime 
  • Turbot with béarnaise sauce
  • Pappardelle with porcini and Reggiano parmesan
  • Fish amd chips
