Cannoli Cheesecake & Ron Rubin Pinot Noir
Our Cannoli Cheesecake is an incredible combination of flavors and textures. The Ron Rubin Pinot Noir has a fruit-forward profile which blends perfectly with the ricotta cream and chocolate chunks. This wine’s delicate notes of cherry and a hint of earthiness elevate the cheesecake’s richness, creating a symphony of flavor!
Bundino di Pane & Diora Chardonnay
The warmth of the Budino di Pane finds its match in the Diora Chardonnay. This dessert, with its comforting blend of cinnamon, sugar, and vanilla, is wonderfully complemented by the Chardonnay’s buttery texture and notes of ripe pear and toasted oak. The wine’s smooth finish balances the sweetness of the bread pudding, resulting in a pairing that feels like a cozy embrace on these cold winter nights!
Torta di Cioccolato & Silver Spur Cabernet
This rich, decadent dessert deserves an equally bold partner. The Silver Spur Cabernet is a robust red that complements the intensity of the dark chocolate and roasted almonds. The wine’s notes of blackberry and hints of spice intertwine with the velvety sweetness of the cake, while the vanilla gelato adds a creamy contrast, making every sip and bite a luxurious experience.
Salted Caramel Semifreddo & Tawny Port
Last, but certainly not least, is the fan favorite dessert, the Salted Caramel Semifreddo – a delightful play of sweet and salty. This dessert meets its match in the Tawny Port and its nutty, caramel undertones. As you indulge in the creamy layers of caramel mousse and graham crackers, the Port’s rich, velvety texture and lingering finish round off each bite, leaving a harmonious, lingering taste.
