The three course dinner will be paired with three Brunellos, 1 Syrah, 1 Merlot and 1 Rossoni di Montalcino. The amazing price of just $89.00 per person also includes a complimentary glass of bubbles upon arrival (exclusive of tax and gratuity). Terralsole, established in 1996 sits on thirty acres of vines. Literally meaning Land Towards the Sun, Terralsole owner Mario Bollag along with his wife Athena, have been producing award winning wines using natural viticulture, organic fertilizers and cover crops. Mario will delight in telling you of how he has been crafting 100% Sangiovese Brunello and how he has cultivated two distinct terroirs in Montalcino using as his palette the blend of soils, vineyard aspects and microclimates. ‘Harmony in the bottle’ is the credo and passion that Mario lives by. Neil’s menu for the evening includes: Chicken liver Toscana with pickled walnuts and bruschetta Pappardelle with duck ragu and pecorino Bistecca alla foirentina with cannellini beans and tomato Torta della nonna with grappa soaked cherries The wines we will be pouring: Terralsole Rosso di Montalcino 2007 - 1st course Terralsole ‘Coldoro’ Merlot IGT 2006 – 2nd course Terralsole ‘Pasticcio’ Cab/Franc IGT 2006 Terralsole ‘Solista’ Syrah IGT 2006 Terralsole Brunello di Montalcino 2004 – 3rd course Terralsole Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2004 4th Mario’s Terralsole Grappa for dessert For further information and tickets, please contact Cibo at 604-602-9570 or email email@example.com.
