Reception Drink: Prosecco Castello 4357 Fabiano Veneto – The real thing! For nearly a hundred years the Fabiano family have been making this beautiful traditional wine in Veneto
Starter: Bianchetti Fritti – paprika, breaded whitebait served with fennel salad or Rigatoni Alla Siciliana – tomato, aubergine, mozzarella with a hint of fresh mint (V)
Matched With: Soave Leonildo Pieropan – Pieropan is widely regarded as Soave's finest producer, a reputation which is borne out by the depth and body of his brilliant wines.
Main Course: Pollo Saltimbocca – wrapped in parma ham, sage & cooked in white wine with spinach or Risotto Ai Funghi Selvaggi – Arborio rice, wild mushrooms, parmesan & truffle oil (V)
Matched With: Negroamaro, Casato di Melzi Mabis, Puglia, Italy – We're moving deep south to the Biscardi family vineyards in Puglia, where they produce some tremendous wines from the local grape varieties
Dessert: Affogato – A classic combination of rich vanilla ice cream and espresso coffee (V)
Matched With: Recioto della Valpolicella Classico 2010 – We're heading up north again for this surprising, unexpected, rich and indulgent red dessert wine.
Digestivo: Grappa di Prosecco – A round trip and back to where we started. This rather upmarket version of the classic Italian spirit is made from prosecco grapes
