VINTAGE UMBRIA: MARCH 10, 2014
Join us on March 10, 2014 as we celebrate one of Umbria’s greatest gems: the black truffle. Each course has been carefully crafted to pair with the storied wines of Umbria. Featured producers include Arnaldo Caprai — the pioneering force behind dry style Sagrantino; Paolo Bea — leader of Italy’s natural wine movement; Giampaolo Tabarrini — Umbria’s young rising star; Milziade Antano — the staunch traditionalist; and Antonelli — one of the old guard of Umbrian winemaking.

WHAT IS VINTAGE BABBO?
On select Monday evenings, we invite Italian wine lovers to join us for a special tasting menu paired with the best vintage wines from the depths of our cellar. Unlike many restaurant wine dinners, these are not distributor-sponsored events featuring “current-release” wines. The allure of Vintage Babbo is that it’s a personal expression of the restaurant; an opportunity for us to dig deep into our cellar (as much as it may sometimes hurt to see these wines leave); and an excuse to share the best of the best with our customers.
HOW TO RESERVE?
Our Vintage Babbo dinners are typically held in our upstairs dining room, and normally consist of six or more courses paired with wines. Prices range from $295 to $695 per person, depending on the wines featured. To book a seat for any of the upcoming dinners listed, contact the restaurant at 212-353-8064.
