Date night at Provenzano’s Italian Ristorante…
~ wine tasting notes ~
Barone Fini Pinot Grigio:
Straw, almost clear in color, this wine has a mineral, earthy nose and a creamy texture. Its dry flavor is characterized by subtle lemon, orange and minerals. It has good acidity and a nice finish. It was amazing with Italian porchetta, garlic mashed potatoes and creamy alfredo sauce.
Passito is made from dried Garganega grapes with hints of honey, floral and exotic ripe fruits. Elegant and sweet. Full-bodied with very good length – typical of a fine quality Passito. Delicious with dessert or cheese course.
Italian porchetta with garlic mashed potatoes
everything was wonderful!
After dinner we decided to do a little antiquing and found some awesome deals on vintage cameras, silver plate, a couple pieces of china and crocheted doilies. We’re both interested in taking pictures with old film cameras. Some of the effects you get with them are amazing. And I’m always looking for interesting dishes and silverware to photograph for scenes in my tea book. Kismet!
The theme song for the evening…hee hee… whenever we go out for Italian or cook Italian I think Dean Martin and/or THIS.
What did you do for date night this week?
