Each succulent course of the six-course tasting menu is created by none other than Executive Chef Olivier Dubreuil who paired this masterpiece  with Tignanello wines from the Chianti region of Italy.



 Executive Chef Olivier Dubreuil

Tignanello is made from a selection of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc then aged in barriques for about 12 months and an additional 12 months in the bottle.  This was the first Sangiovese to be aged in barriques, the first red wine to be blended with non-traditional varieties and one of the first Chianti reds not to use white grapes.
