Del Frate: environment
The dark wood furniture, the exposed brickwork, the beautiful old ceilings enlivened by more modern steel elements give a charming aura to the wine room, which makes the display of the bottles stand out in the best way there are now over three thousand references, well-known names from the wine scene present with the flower of their production, with a considerable depth of vintages, including historical ones. There is also ample space for smaller biological realities which, with their interesting bottles, do not disfigure alongside the sacred monsters of the sector and make the selection of the Del Frate family very current, clearly the result of study, experience and continuous research.
Enoteca Del Frate: the products
Many foreign bottles, from the regions of France, but also from Germany or from overseas, to then reach the shelves that house the finest spirits and grappas in luxurious packs. Also on the gastronomic side, the offer includes the best brands of chocolate, honey, preserves, oils and vinegars. At the wine bar you can taste some of the bottles in the wine shop, the serving changes often and is always tempting, accompanying the glass with a platter of meats or cheeses, or with a hot dish that will reveal the preparation of the kitchen staff, to be discovered maybe during a refined dinner in the restaurant.
