The dinner menu featured an array of seafood such as black cod, and crab bisque, alongside a fillet mignon, paired with both red and white wines.

First, there was the Smoked Salmon & Apples paired with the Torricella Chardonnay 2015. Pale straw color in the glass, this chardonnay smell incredibly fruity, and displayed a lovely concentration of citrus flavors and beautiful aromatic herbs. Many loved this wine, ideal to serve with the dish made of premium smoked salmon, hard-boiled eggs, honey roasted granny smiths, sultanas and mixed greens dressed in apple cider vinaigrette.

The dinner continued with the serving of the soup. The Crab Bisque with crab jumbo lump was a combination of spices and succulence of the crustacean.

To drink, diners had the Brolio Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2014, made with blend of sangiovese, merlot and cabernet sauvignon. This light-bodied red wine perked up with spicy notes and hints of vanilla.

The Baked Miso Black Cod with spinach and celeriac salad was soon served with the Rocca Guicciarda Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2014. Three types of grapes go into this bottle – sangiovese, merlot, and canaiolo. With its broad spectrum of tannins and minerals, this is one of the few reds that harmonized very well with fish.Asiaeuro, Barone Ricasoli Wine, Brolio, Brolio Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG, Casalferro IGT 2013, Castello Di Brolio Vin Santo DOCG 2008, Ck Lam, Italian Wine, Italian Wines, Rocca Guicciarda Classico Riserva DOCG 2014, Wine Pairing, Torricella Chardonnay 2015, Sangiovese grapes, Malvasia grape, Wine Champagne and Spirits, Toscana, Italian Wine

The fourth wine was the Casalferro IGT 2013, an appealing premium bright ruby red wine. The vintage 2013 is the 20th Anniversary edition and is made with merlot grapes from the terroir of Brolio.

With roundness and rich with strong tanins from the wood used for ageing, the wine made a nice pairing with the Fillet Mignon served with baked pink potatoes and grilled vegetables.

The dessert of Hojicha Cheese Mille Feuille accompanied by a glass of Castello Di Brolio Vin Santo DOCG 2008 took us nicely to the night. The pairing of the dessert with the sweetness of the wine with pleasant overtones of apricots and dried figs pleases the palate.
