Brunello at the seaside? Why not!
This is the official debut of my wines on Ulysses and Calypso’s isle, an old and beautiful place. Here my husband Carlo and I have a house and feel very much at home. The new importers Attard – Abraham’s Suppliers have begun di distribute my wines in September and are very enthusiastic. Chris Cassar, the owner of the restaurant is now in fact a friend. So I really feel among family here and every thing begins in the best of ways.
The event is organized for 60 people and takes place on the balcony overlooking the sea at Porto Vecchio: there are some Danes from a boat moored not too far away, an English ex magistrate, a super wine expert who has a home here, an Australian with vines down under, the menu includes 22 delicious dishes so the dinner presents itself really sumptuously
At the beginning fish entrees and then meat with a filled worthy of the best Tuscan tradition. Chris has a young chef who has lightened the traditional recipes enriching them with new aromatic hints. In other word the Maltese cuisine in the new millennium.
And then my red wines, elegant harmonious to be matched with great meat
dishes in a perfect marriage. The Cenerentola Doc Orcia and the Brunello 2006 Prime Donne were a great success! Even with the mid summer temperatures, the refined balance of my wines wins and convinces. They are liked mostly by the more demanding, who follow new trends and privilege elegance compared to powerfulness.
Among photographs, and toasts the evening finishes in a party.
How beautiful Gozo is!
