Spuntino Wine Bar & Italian Tapas in Clifton to Host Rocca Delle Macie Wine Dinner

October 12, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm


Chef de Cuisine Michel Desjardins has developed a five-course tasting menu paired with Rocca Delle Macie Wines – one of the most well-established wineries in the Chianti Classico area. In 1973, Italo Zingarelli purchased the borgo of Le Macie. Today, thanks to the commitment and foresight of Italo’s younger son, Sergio, Rocca delle Macie has not only enhanced its reputation, but also increased in size with its six estates now covering a total of 600 hectares.

Guest speaker Andrea Zingarelli, third generation winemaker, U.S. Ambassador of Chianti, will provide tasting notes throughout the dinner. The full menu includes:

  • Striped Bass Crudo – Roasted garlic, chili oil and micro greens.
    • Paired with a Moonlite – Straw-yellow color with pale green reflections. Intense aromas of white flowers with hints of flint.
  • Butternut Squash Gnocchi – Tomatoes and Pecorino Romano cheese.
    • Paired with a Chianti Classico – Intense, mature fruit aromas. Rich, well-structured, berry fruit flavors.
  • Red Snapper – Pineapple, pepper coulis and Swiss char.
    • Paired with a Classico Reserva –Rich, intense and complex aromas. Dry, soft, gently tannic with good structure.
  •  Seared Duck Breast – Black currant gastrique and black pepper polenta.
    • Paired with a Roccato – Full and persistent, with toasty oak from the barrique aging. Dry, elegant with a good structure on the tongue.
  • Chocolate Terrine– Black truffle gelato, candied walnuts and Luxardo cherries.
    • Paired with a Sasyr – Features intense red fruit aromas of ripe cherry, blackberry and raspberry. A succulent, supple well-structured palate with a silky and smooth finish.
