My personal notes

Our wine stewards suggest

+- 15$ Anselmi San Vincenzo

Texture, freshness and notes of exploding ripe fruits. A wine from the regular directory that I buy often since it's that good!

+- 30$ Anselmi Capitel Foscarino 2013

Want to spoil yourself? A top-quality vintage from the same producer, with added complexity, notes of almonds and a hint of minerality. A superb wine at an incredible price for the quality.

Saison Framboise, Dunham

Dare to try a raspberry beer! It will be a great pairing with the tomatoes, the red wine vinegar and the port in this dish. The Saison yeast will bring a peppery touch to the soup. The light acidity of this beer will evoke the one in the dish.
