There are a few spots left at Thursday night's Casanova di Neri wine dinner at Aldo's. The dinner celebrates the re-release of the Brunello Tenuta Nuova 2007 from Casanova di Neri.
A small, family company run by Giacomo Neri, Casanova di Neri has only 48 hectares of planted vineyards. In 2006, the Wine Spectator named their Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova 2001 the world's top wine, calling it "one of the best examples of the recent winemaking renaissance in Tuscany."
If that sounds like something you'd like to sip, give Aldo's a call. The menu from Sergio Vitale includes assorted antipasti like ginger-marinated tuna carpaccio ribbons, rabbit confit with cannellini beans and chard and Robiola cheese fonduta, continues with a main course of Aldo’s famous "Tournedos Rossini" and concludes with Belgian chocolate cake.
The wine dinner will be held at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Aldo's Ristorante Italiano, 306 S. High St. The dinner is $135 per person. Call 410-662-2284 or go to aldoswinedinner.eventbrite.com.
A portion of the proceeds from the wine dinner will be donated to the Ron Smith Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund at the Johns Hopkins University.
