One of Italy’s legendary wines, Brunello di Montalcino is made with 100 percent Sangiovese grapes grown in the region of the town of Montalcino in the Tuscany wine region. In 1980, Brunello di Montalcino was awarded the first Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita designation and today is one of Italy’s best-known and most expensive wines.
R&J Italian Lounge & Restaurant at The Reverie Saigon will present an elegant five-course dinner of exquisite Italian cuisine paired with a selection of the very best Brunello di Mantalcino wines each evening from 20 to 23 September.
The expansive menu includes such highlights as foie gras “Croccantino”, cherry compote and aged balsamic vinegar; wild boar lasagna with truffle and sweet potato chips; braised Australian lamb with crushed potato, green peas, porcini, coffee sauce; and the chef’s special chocolate extravaganza.
Featured wines will begin with two examples of a Lombardy region sparkling wine Bellavista before moving on to the main feature. Selections of Brunello di Montalcino will include those from producers including Castello Banfi, Frescobaldi and Antinori Marchesi.
This sumptuous dinner of the finest Italian cuisine and wines is priced at only VND 4,000,000, and is a must for any serious gourmand.
