Youve watched Sideways ten times and your dream is to drive
through Napa with Georges Pertuiset as your date.
With over 200 labels, many of which arent even available at the LCBO,
the impressive wine list at Trattoria Giancarlos new wine bar may be the
next best thing.
Sommelier and owner Antonio Baratas suggestions include:
Clos De Los
Siete – Malbec 2006 – Mendoza, Argentina (bottle, $70)
La Bascula –
Syrah/Monastrell 2005 – Spain (bottle, $50)
Illuminati Riparosso –
Montepulciano D’Abruzzo 2006 – Italy (bottle, $40)
Pair your wines with light and tasty Italian food ($6-$15) like beef
carpaccio, Chiantigiana pasta (with onions, tomatoes and black olives)
or the Farrotto (barley risotto with king crab and vegetable vellutata).
When youre nowhere near Napa, Little Italy will more than do.
Trattoria Giancarlo, 41 Clinton St., Toronto, 416-533-9619.
