Recap of Wine Club Dinner in Dali's

I am a bit late getting my act together as I was away for the weekend, but we had a great night in Dali's last week. The food, as you would expect was very, very good and we had 27 people there to sample some good food and wine. The wine lineup was La Riva dei Frati, Fattori and Enzo Boglietti. The wines were introduced by Giussepina Andreacchio, seen here in full flight.

In general, the prosecco, as always went down very well, all the whites went down well, with some differing views about the favourite choice between the Pinot Grigio, Soave and Sauvignon which are all clean, well-made wines, feflecting well their respective characteristics. With the reds, I felt the Nebbiolo, while very good, needed a bit more time. Lots of people preferred the Dolcetto, but I felt the Barbera was the star. The surprise of the night was the universally liked Recioto di Soave which washed down dessert very nicely.

A good time had by all, more photos on www.facebook.com/onthegrapevine ...
