Round two and we can’t wait.  Tonight the tasting menu it shall be.  After spending time with Angelo in the cellar our palates were craving something special from Campania and Mr. Di Costanzo delivered – – Quintodecimo!!!!!  Angelo you’d be proud as Daniele was the perfect sommelier while you were away.  Your tutelage is a great success.
