Wine Tasting / Dinner

The Italian Market
WINE TASTING
MARCH 12, 2020  – 5:30-7:30  pm

In lieu of the dinner, we will hold a tasting of all the wines from L’Arco. The tasting will be free of charge and will start at 5:30 and go until 7:30 still on Thursday the 12th.

Unfortunately, we had to cancel the L’Arco wine dinner on the 12th.  The corona virus has prevented, the owner and winemaker, Luca from traveling to the United States.

The Lineup Will Be

Rosso Veronese – 50% corvina and corvinone, 30 % rondinella, 15% sangiovese, and 5% molinara – This is a typical blend from the Veneto with some sangiovese blended in. The sangiovese adds some darker fruit flavors along with a little tannin and acidity.

Ripasso – 50% corvina and corvinone, 40% rondinella, 10% molinara.  A Ripasso wine is probably the best example of a wine from the Veneto. It is bigger than a regular Valpolicella but still light enough to pair with a large selection of meals.

Amarone – 55% corvina and corvinone, 35% rondinella, 10% molinara.  This region is famous for this wine. Amarone is a big wine that is made by drying the grapes before pressing. This process makes very dense and flavorful wines. Luca trained under the man who is widely considered the best Amarone producer, Giuseppe Quintarelli. His wines show that pedigree.

Pario – Amarone blended with some of the Ripasso.

Rubeo – Amarone blended with the two cabernets.           

While his other wines are amazing these two show his true talent for winemaking. They are a blend of techniques and partial drying. There is no science for this. You can only decide to make the wine by checking on the drying fruit daily and let experience be the guide. Come by and find out for yourself. You may be tasting the next Cult Wine.

03-17-2020 Dear Italian Market Supporters,
With the trepidation surrounding the spread of the Coronavirus we wanted to inform you of the extra precautions that have been implemented.  All our food preparation areas are normally cleaned and sanitized at the beginning and end of every shift. We have increased this to hourly.  This hourly cleaning and food grade sanitizing regime will incorporate all surfaces that our guests can encounter.

  • This will include all self-service counters, ordering and receiving counters, bathroom facilities, door handles, push plates and any other area that I am failing to remember at this moment.
  • The tables and chairs will be cleaned and sanitized after every use.
  • All our cleaning and sanitizing agents are food service grade.

For those who would like a bit more distance than the recommended 6 feet of space between people, we offer a drive thru pick-up window. You can give us a call and drive by for pick up.  We go above the necessary not because of any regulations but because of family. This restaurant is a family establishment. It reflects the idea of family that the Lubrano’s hold. On any given day, you can come in and likely run into a family member dining here. These ideas extend beyond the immediate. They extend to the staff, many of which have been with the family for more than 7 years. They also extend to you, our guests. We want to make you feel as though you are with family every time you are here.

From our family to yours, stay safe and take care of one another.
