Vino e Antipasti (Wine and Appetizers)

This is a great Italian restaurant that I often frequent. They have a great party room that will work well for us, and they are excited to host our wine group. They will put together some nice antipasti platters for us and pick some really nice wines to go with them...all Italian of course! As usual, you are welcome to stay after and order more of anything if you are interested, or, just come out for apps and wine for the event.

Here is a little Italian lesson for you:

Antipasto (plural antipasti) means "before the meal" and is the traditional first course of a formal Italian meal. Traditional antipasto includes cured meats, olives, peperoncini, mushrooms, anchovies, artichoke hearts, various cheeses (such as provolone or mozzarella), pickled meats and vegetables (both in oil or in vinegar).

 

Here are the wines and antipasti we will be having...5 wines and family style platters of antipasti ....all for   $28.00 (+tax and tip):

1. Pietro Rinaldi Arneis 2010

MINERAL AND DRY CHARACTER

2. Morellini Di Scansano 2006

RED CHERRY WITH GREAT TARTNESS AND ACIDITY


3. Z D Chardonnay 2008

OAKY WITH AROMAS OF PEAR,LIME AND ORANGE VERY FRUIT FORWARD

4. Row 11 Pinot Noir 2009

    DITTO! I had a really great time! Thanks Chet! And I am so glad I stayed later than I usually do, it was worth it!

    Fantastico!!! This was not a tasting...it turned into an all night event with glasses of wine. Our host Sam was very generous with the pours and Marco the chef did a great job with the food and Todd picked our wines. Together, the staff at Tutti Santi went above and beyond in hosting our group....especially since we wound up being there for about 4 1/2 - 5 hours. We got a little rowdy and I was worried about being asked back here, but in the end, we are welcome to return and we most certainly will. Since this was our first time here and now Tutti santi knows what to expect from us, the events we hold here will get better and better......
