This beautiful cheese is a combination of a great Fromage de Meaux filled with a mixture of crème fraîche and truffle flakes to create a deliciously decadent treat that is texturally interesting. The brie has well balanced flavour that lingers. Then there is the layer of truffles, these fabulous little fungi with so much flavour that just a little is needed. There is perfect balance between the aromatic truffle and the creamy brie. The result is delicious and will make any occasion special.
Open for Complimentary Tasting all weekend in the Loft!
A red wine made from 100% Dolcetto grapes from vines ranging from 10 to 60 years old. They are cultivated using respectful agriculture with a mix of modern techniques, but without discarding the traditional Langhe practices. In the winery the grapes ferment with maceration on the skins for 5-7 days and then the wine is
left to age in steel tanks for about 10 months.
Fruity, fresh and enveloping, Domenico Clerico Dolcetto Langhe Visadi is Domenico’s classic dolcetto. The expression of the care and passion that this visionary winegrower had for the DOC Langhe.
Open all long weekend for complimentary tasting in the Loft
Friday, 3 June - Monday, 6 June 2022
This delicious red is from the hills of Cazzano di Tramigna in the Valpolicella DOC, a small hamlet not far from Soave. It is highly structured, harmonious, and delicate, with a long finish. The refreshing acidity balances out the wine’s alcohol, and the tannins are dense yet fine. It is 75% Corvina, 15% Corvinone, 5% Rondinella and 5% Monlinara. The grape harvest, exclusively by hand, starts in October and all the grapes are collected in crates of no more than 20 kg. After crushing, fermentation takes place at temperatures between 25°C and 28°C for 10-12 days, with pumping over the cap three times a day for
15-20 minutes. Storage and ageing of the wine takes place in steel barrels for about four months.
