Joe’s Sommelier Series: Italy

Ciao!  We’re heading to Northeast Italy this month. Stop by Joe’s June 18-24 to sample some of the country’s most beautiful wines.

Every May wine aficionados head to Verona, Italy to attend VINITALY, an annual gathering where patrons can experience the very best wine from all corners of the country. Each year producers from the Franciacorta region are flooded with imbibers eager to taste their delicious sparkling wines.  From one of the most highly-regarded producers of the area, the Ca’ del Bosco, Cuvée Prestige, Franciacorta, Italy ($16 per 6oz) is a wonderful representation of all that the area has to offer. Citrus notes on the nose lead to a complex and full palate, making it perfect as an aperitif or paired  with our oysters on the half shell.

Northeastern Italy is known for producing fresh and vibrant white wines, and the Venica, Friulano, Ronco delle Cime, Collio, Italy ($15 per 6oz) offers consumers the opportunity to enjoy just that, as well as an oft-overlooked grape variety. Sourced from the highest elevation vineyards on the Venica property, this wine is fruity but dry, with notes of white peach and smoked almonds. Try this alongside our Grilled Grouper with Cilantro Mojo.

The region of Valpolicella has long been associated with some of the finest red wine in all of Italy, and the Dal Forno Romano wines are some of the most highly regarded and sought after labels from that area. We were lucky to secure enough Dal Forno Romano, Valpolicella Superiore, Italy ($17 per 3oz / $34 per 6oz) to pour as one of our featured selections this month. Bold and powerful, it has a hearty core of dark fruit, making it a wonderful wine to pair with our signature cuts.

Founded in 1857 by brothers Giovan Battista & Gaetano Bertani, the Bertani estate is synonymous with excellence. Under the guidance of expert winemaker Andrea Lonardi, their apex of production is Bertani, Amarone della Valpolicella Classico, Italy ($20 per 3oz / $40 per 6oz). Utilizing a technique called appassimento, the Corvina and Rondinella grapes are dried for a period of time prior to pressing, concentrating the fruit and helping to form a very rich style of wine. Intense flavors of plum and licorice, balanced by acidity and tannin, make a beautiful match for our 30oz Bone-In Porterhouse.

Wine Tip: With over 350 approved grape varieties planted from Alto Adige in the north to Puglia in the south, Italy provides a style of wine suited for almost every palate, and Joe’s has the one that is right for you.

In Chicago, we’ll donate $1 from every slice ordered to the Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation which raises money for cancer research and provides support to children and their families battling the disease…#PieitForward.

Bloomberg Pursuits: The Best Steaks in Chicago

From Bloomberg Pursuits: Joe’s might be best known for its crab claws (the Miami flagship is the second-highest-grossing restaurant in the country, after Tao in Vegas. But Boston’s Ken Oringer favors the River North location for the opportunity to have the ultimate surf and turf meal. “For steak, I go to Joe’s Stone Crab,” enthuses Oringer. “Any place where I can get stone crab like Joe’s to start a meal and finish with a porterhouse (30 oz, $74.95) is the perfect spot for me. I go for their prime dry aged corn fed beef; it’s got a secret seasoning salt.”
