Italian restaurant The Cliff at Sofitel Singapore Sentosa will be hosting a five-course wine dinner on Thursday 7 September 2023 featuring wines of Omina Romana.
As part of a series of wine dinners held at The Cliff, the upcoming Omina Romana wine dinner will see Chef de Cuisine Paolo Benedet present a multi-course dinner offering dishes typical of Rome, as inspired by the home of Omina Romana.
For those unfamiliar with Omina Romana, the family-run winery is based in the area of Velletri, set among the lush volcanic hills of the Castelli Romani that overlooks the Tyrrhenian Sea, about 40 km south of Rome. It produces mainly wines from international grape varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Chardonnay, and Viognier, but also indigenous regional varietals such as Cesanese. Omina Romana wines are known for being terroir forward while adopting a more modern approach.
The wines to be showcased at this MONTI wine dinner are:
Katharina Borner, CEO of Omina Romana will be present to share more about their art of winemaking at the dinner.
The five-course menu begins with two antipasti starting with the Panzanella Alla Romana Con Gamberi Scottati, or seared prawns with croutons and tomatoes. This is paired with a Chadonnay IGT 2020, which has a lingering and savoury finish.
The second antipasto is the Baccala Alla Romana. The crispy cod morsels with deep fried artichoke, charred lemon and garlic aioli is paired with the Merlot Rosato IGT2021, a bright pink rose with notes of pink grapefruit.
The third course is a pasta dish. Chef Benedet will pair Bucatini All’ Amatriciana, or holed spaghetti with guanciale and pecorino romano with Cesanese IGT 2015, that is intense with hints of black cherries, red plums and figs.
Abbachio Allo Scottadito, or roasted lamb on bone with potato nouvelle and garlic rosemary gremolata, will be the main dish of the night. This is paired with a Rosso ‘Janus Geminus I’ IGT 2015, made with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot grapes.
The night ends on a sweet note with the Crostata di Ricotta e Visciole, a sweet ricotta tart with Visciole sour cherry compote that is paired with the Moscato Passito IGT 2013, an aromatic wine with notes of orange blossom.
