Marques de Riscal Mediterranean Wine Dinner at Rossinis

Rossini’s award-winning Italian restaurant at Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit will host an unforgettable Marqués de Riscal Mediterranean Wine Dinner on Mar. 5 from 7.30pm.

Synonymous with reds from Rioja, Marqués de Riscal is one of the oldest wineries in Spain. Throughout its rich history, the renowned winemaker has been an innovator, creating fine wines which are original, fresh, elegant and engaging. At Rossini’s Marqués de Riscal Mediterranean Wine Dinner, Jose Luis Mugiro from the owning family will be present to provide valuable insight about the exceptional wines.

For B4,700 net per person, diners will enjoy a five-course gourmet menu created by Rossini’s inspired chefs to complement the carefully chosen Marqués de Riscal wines. The memorable evening will begin with enticing Mediterranean appetizers served with a complex, grassy, fruit-forward Marqués de Riscal Sauvignon Blanc 2011. The first course will be a delightful caldo verde soup with scallop and chorizo served with Marqués de Riscal Rueda DOC Rueda 2011, an intriguing white made with Spain’s indigenous Verdejo grape. A light, delicate white wine with an intensely aromatic bouquet and bursting with fruit on the palate, it is the perfect accompaniment for the delicate soup.

The first of a trio of venerable reds will be an intense Marqués de Riscal Reserva DOC Rioja 2006 with its savory notes of dark berries and toasted oak beautifully matched with Rossini’s take on a classic paella. Guest will also enjoy Marqués de Riscal Gran Reserva DOC Rioja 2001, a glass-coating opaque purple wine with aromas of incense, Asian spices, violets, and berries. The extraordinary vintage will be paired with roasted Iberico ham with a flavorful mushroom ragu. A highlight of the evening will be the Marqués De Riscal Baron de Chirel DOC Rioja 2005 served with slow cooked lamb shoulder, eggplants and roasted potatoes. Only made in years of exceptional harvest, the “Baron” is deep, dark and brooding Tempranillo-dominated wine with black fruits layered and sweet toasty oak.

The memorable evening of fine dining in Rossini’s enchanting Tuscan villa setting will end on a high note with an exquisite dessert of peaches, yogurt mousse and citrus sherbet accompanied by the sweet Italian wine, Umani Ronchi Maximo.
