Jim McCusker

From one of our favorite producers in Italy, this is a nerello mascalesi from the slopes of Mt Etna in Sicily. A small production version of their main wine, this is a bit young right now but opened up beautifully in the glass over 30-40min. An amazing complement to the seared waygu filet (and probably the best waygu I’ve ever had at any restaurant. Ever.). Run...don’t walk...to Fiola in Washington, DC (and ask for Jennifer, one of the sommeliers here who totally knows her shit when it comes to Italian wines). Just a fantastic evening!
