Second row, the Risotto al Tartufo Nero, made with arborio rice and fresh black truffles, paired with the August Ridge 2013 Estate Reserve Ingenious, a blend of 72% Nebbiolo, 20% Merlot and 8% Cab Sauv.

Third row, left is the Quaglie Arrosto, roasted quail with porcini ragout, spinach, parmesan and polenta, paired with their 2013 Estate Reserve Jovial, a blend of 68% Sangiovese, 22% Cab Sauv, 10% Merlot; right is the perfect sweet ending to our meal: Sorbetto della Casa.

Many thanks to everyone at Ca’ Dario for such an incredible meal and attentive service, and to August Ridge for selecting the perfect wines with each course. This was such a memorable Supper Club!
