San Felice Chianti and Brunello Wine Dinner at il Casale
Marco Secola of San Felice Winery will attend with six distinct wines, each paired with an exquisite dish by chef/owner Dante de Magistris, June 12.
Guests are invited to indulge in Tuscany’s most distinguished wine from San Felice Winery alongside a mouthwatering five-course meal at il Casale Belmont on Tuesday, June 12.
Countless generations of Tuscan farmers have produced exceptional wines at the San Felice Winery and on June 12, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., Bostonians will have the chance to experience the best of Italy’s Chianti and Brunello wines. Traditional techniques developed by native villagers have fused with modern advancements to celebrate the region’s wine, while also preserving the Chianti landscape. The team at il Casale Belmont, led by chef/owner Dante de Magistris, invite guests to learn more about San Felice at their Chianti and Brunello Wine Dinner.
With roots tracing back to antiquity, San Felice’s land has been utilized by many over the years—ranging from nuclear families to the Papacy. 1970 saw the vineyards come into their current ownership of the Allianz Group. The company worked arduously to restore the land to its prime form, where they now produce some of Italy’s most famous Chianti Classico and Brunello di Montalcino Bolgheri wines. Marco Secola will be in attendance to further illustrate the colorful history of San Felice.
And while wine certainly takes center stage this night, il Casale’s beautifully designed menu will serve as a stellar accompaniment. The full menu is as follows:
Insalata di gamberetti con fagioli su bruschetta al pomodoro, olio al basilico
