ON THE WINE LIST:
“Clara Prosecco Spumante Superiore Brut Valdobbiadene Docg”
This is an exuberant and decisive wine at the same time as being elegant and docile.
An old venetian story narrates of a female rhinoceros, brought to Piazza San Marco from a far off land to be admired as a strange wonder.
It was a strong and indomitable specimen yet became meek and docile enough to rest its head on a little girl’s lap and allowed itself to be stroked. In the glass Clara appears with a frothy straw yellow nuance and a steady, continuous perlage. The impact on the nose is intense and direct with soapy notes and a exotic touch of incense that gives way to floral scents of hawthorn and fruity notes of crunchy medlar fruit with interesting hints of citrus. On the palate it is decisively fresh, as the fruity notes welcomely return for an encore, completing the elegance of its lingering sapidity.
Food pairing: stewed squid with aromatic oranges.
