SquareMeal Review of
With Italians now liberally distributed across SW7, local expats (and fans of their homeland’s best DOPs) will be thrilled by the arrival of this most persuasive of ambassadors – a chic specialist
wine bar and boutique off-licence. On offer is a stonking stock of over 600 directly sourced tipples, with many offered by the glass from the in-house Enomatic system: friendly staff are on hand to
nudge you towards delicious discoveries such as Nero di Troia Rosato (a sensational summer rosé) or Sori San Martino Dogliani Superiore (a full-bodied Piedmont ruby red with hints of almond and
cherry). To eat, order mixed taglieri – food platters loaded with regional cheeses and cold cuts ranging from Ubriaco Prosecco (‘drunk’ cheese) and smoked Sicilian scamorza to top-notch bresaola
and castelspeck (a lean smoked ham from the Alto Adige traditionally flavoured with spices and juniper).
