Holiday Pairing with Sommelier Jessica Altieri
Sommelier Jessica Altieri from Wine Channel TV gives you a great holiday pairing with Villa Maria Estate Cellar Selection Pinot Noir and a handcrafted artisan salumi dish from Chef John Coletta from Quartino
Wine Channel TV, winechanneltv.tv for a “Holiday on a Plate” pairing with Villa Maria Estate Cellar Selection Pinot Noir and Quartino Restaurant. Jessica Altieri joins Celebrity Chef John Coletta of Quartino Restaurant, quartinochicago.com, for a hand carved Artisan Salumi plate featuring Spianata Artisan Knife Cut Porkbelly and Shoulder Salumi and Soppressata Spicy Calabrian Sausage.
The Villa Maria Cellar Selection Pinot Noir wine originates from selected vineyards in the Awatere and Southern valleys of Marlborough made to reflect the individuality of their sites. A fragrant bouquet of red and dark cherries, red berry fruit and subtle spice notes, this wine is concentrated and juicy. From the winemaker: “A perfumed bouquet of red and dark cherries, plums and spice notes. Fruit driven and elegant, with long layers of flavour, full-bodied and well-balanced with fine, grainy tannins. This wine is concentrated and rich – an elegant Pinot Noir with finesse and complexity. This wine can be enjoyed now but with careful cellaring will continue to develop for another five to eight years.”
Chef and partner, John Coletta, has developed a menu featuring Italy’s regional specialties including artisanal salumi, Neapolitan thin-crust pizza, house-made pasta, and seasonal dishes.Menu items, served in moderate portions and meant to be shared, are perfect for adventurous diners ready for a unique experience.
