Assaggino di Mare: Toast the brioche slices and serve with the smoked salmon, caviar and butter.
Ravioli al Granchio: Bring 4L of salted water to a boil. In a small pan melt the lemon caper butter puck and set aside. Cook the crab ravioli for 3 minutes, strain and toss in the butter sauce for a couple of minutes. Divide the ravioli and their sauce into two plates, top with the aromatic bread crumbs and add an additional grating of lemon zest if desired.
Polpo e Patate: Preheat a pan for 2-3 minutes until very hot. Toss the contents of the potato tray into the pan, swerving the pan around. Open the octopus package, pat it dry, season with salt and oil. Heat 2 tblsp of EVOO in a cast iron skillet, sear the octopus, 3-4 minutes per size. Serve the octopus over the potato side.
Butter Lettuce Salad: Gently toss the salad in a bowl with the dressing. Serve by gently layering the leaves on a plate.
Chocolate Mousse: Ready to serve.
2019 Monrosé Terrazze Retiche Sondrio IGT, Mamete Prevostini: Light brick red with notes of red fruit, apricot undertones and a deep mineral streak. A splendid, well-balanced palate with fresh overtones and a finish of raspberry and wild rose. An ethereal expression of the Nebbiolo grape backed by acidity from the unique alpine terroir.
2019 Müller Thurgau Alto Adige DOC, Girlan: Müller Thurgau is the result of a crossing between Riesling and Sylvaner. The bunches are fine and have green-yellowish fragrant grapes. The wine’s delicate notes of aromatic walnut and nutmeg combine with a moderate acidity while exhibiting an elegant freshness.
2017 'Skin" Pinot Grigio Collio DOC, Primosic: Intense amber red with aromas of violets and stewed fruit. Powerful and complex on the palate with a rich and mineral finish. An orange wine made from perfectly overripe grapes.
2017 Navigabile Etna Rosso DOC, Ayunta: Pale garnet with aromas of violet, red cherries and stone. A mineral palate with smokiness and spice is balanced with bright acidity and firm tannins. Navigabile translates to "able to be shipped by sail" and was used by local merchants in the 18th century for top wines capable of traveling across the sea; being able to maintain their quality and fragrance.
