Prasino Napple-on
Crisp Granny Smith apples layered with succulent meat morsels, sweet candied onions, capped with a blue cheese wafer and drizzled with a balsamic reduction.
2004 Orvieto Classico Libra
Fresh, light and versatile, this is a delightful wine made mostly from Trebbiano grapes. Its bright citrus notes will brighten your afternoon any day.

Eurasia
East meets west in a refreshing salad of cucmbers, peppers, tomatoes, onions and goat cheese tossed in an herbed sesame oil & citrus vinaigrette, topped with garlicky shrimp.
2005 Chianti Colli Senesi Panezio
Intense ruby red color with pleasant aromas of cherries and wild straw-berries. Soft and round, and made from 100% Sangiovese grapes, it is well balanced and distinguished with the right amount of noble tannins.

Verikoko
PCornish Hens roasted with a spicy Ancho Chile-Coffee rub and an Apricot-Ancho Chile Chutney, served on a bed of saffron couscous studded with chorizo, red & green peppers, onions, apricots and almonds.
2004 Morellino di Scansano
A blend of Morellino, Ciliegiolo and Alicante grapes, this wine displays a deep ruby red color, and an intensely fruity bouquet with notes of black cherry jam. Full bodied with a rich, almost meaty quality on the palate, this Riserva reveals mature tan-nins in its long finish.

Dessert
Il Santo Vino Liquoroso
A traditional dessert wine, it is ready after 3 to 4 years of maturation in small wooden kegs. Once bottled, Il Santo can age for many years becoming richer and more fragrant. Its bouquet is penetrating and more or less sweet according to the vintage year. A golden amber color with a sweet bouquet of raisins, the palate is of rich ripe apples with a hint of bitter almonds. This is a mellow Il Santo with a long delicate finish that compliments many flavors.

$45 + tax & gratuity
