Tasting Notes
Straw Mat for Serving

Bocconcini di Capra; a supple, springy texture, delicate and soft, just holding in the pate.
Rosso di Langa; deliciously soft and melting with tender natural bloomy rind; sweet, nutty taste verging on cobnuts.
Pecorino Sardo has a mocha style character to its mellow, fruity taste.
Toma l'Ubriaco is washed in red wine & vine pressings, giving a fruity quality & beautiful aromas to the rich, buttery texture.
Gorgonzola Dolce Cremificato has an oozing pate into which the blue veins gently bloom, introducing a sweet nutty taste.

MARCO DONATI IN MEZZOCORONA CAMPO ROTALIANO VINEYARDS, TRENTINO

100% TEROLDEGO

This is considered the prince of wines from Trentino & on first impact there is a very rich, fruity & darkly violet intensity. Vigorous & not too aggressive, yet with a smooth finish. Very good when partnered with rich meat dishes, venison & game, reduced wine sauces, & fully matured cheeses. Drunk young it has a racy vibrancy, but can age for several years giving way to a more rounded taste.

Throughout the year our kitchen brings down from the shop floor the loveliest seasonal ingredients and makes jams, marmalades & chutneys to last us through the colder months. Made in small batches, the ingredients change frequently throughout the year to ensure the freshest produce goes into our chutneys. Gorgeous alongside a cheese board but perhaps best on a simple sandwich with a slice of farmhouse cheddar!
