We had this wine, along with a Bottle of the same house’s Biancolella
and Casa Ambra Aglianico with our dinner we made at Cassa Sorrento, the beautifuk apartment with a lovely garden we rented on Via Capo, Sorrento, Italy.
The dinner was with my Cousin Antony Bellino, and cousins Marta and Mimo from Salerno and our friend Alan from Lodi. Marta and Mimo served their Mozzarella di Bufala (from their Mozzarella Fattoria in Salerno), they also made tasty Ricotta Ravioli with Black Truffles shaved on top. We also ate Salami and Pecorino, and I made Lamb Chops with roast potatoes for the main. For dessert, Mimo and Marta made fresh Strawberries with Limoncello and walnuts. It was an amazing dinner, and one I’ll always cherish.
