Perch at the dark marble counter, or, in summer, take a seat on the leafy little terrace at La Tagliata’s wine bar on the corner of Whitfield Street and Grafton way. Begin a good night with a white Negroni made with artichoke gin or a Chinotto Sour, the ‘Italian version of the legendary whiskey sour’.
A couple of handfuls of wines by the glass may include Ribolla Gialla, which ‘goes down well’ according to the accompanying notes (Ronchi di Cialla) or a Nero D’Avola ‘dedicated to the memory of Mafia victims and to those who actively demonstrate opposition to Sicilian criminal organizations’ (Centopassi Giano Rosso Perricone). From the by the bottle list, you could enjoy a vintage version of leading Franciacorta, Ca’ del Bosco, or a Cabernet, Merlot and Montepulciano blend described as ‘fresh and fast at the beginning, almost salty at the centre, which closes with warm sensations and fine tannins (Therra by Giovanini Bulgari).
To deliciously mop the reasonably priced ferment, choose a stone baked pizza, such as, from the gourmet pizza section, the tartufo nero ‘Pregiato’ with mozzarella, sausage and black truffle. Alternatively, try the Abruzzo lamb skewers with toasted bread and a spicy garlic and roast pepper sauce, or grilled chicken salad with Emmenthal.
