You would be hard pressed to find a Catelli’s review online that mentions their Burrata and Prosciutto and doesn’t carry a 5-star rating. This delicious appetizer is made with triple-cream mozzarella and San Daniele Prosciutto, which is served between fresh arugula and bite-sized slices of grilled bread.
We love to munch on this dish while enjoying a glass of our Hopkins Ranch Pinot Noir. The classic fruit flavors of cherry and raspberry, with bright acidity, silky tannins, and velvety fruit weight mix perfectly in your palette with a bite of prosciutto and mozzarella.
Visitors say that you will feel like you’re lost as you venture those few extra miles up 101, or perhaps 128 if you’re coming from the east. But let your stomach be the guide and you will be delighted by the delicious food and family feel of this Geyserville gem. Catelli’s hand-made lasagna is unlike any other you have experienced. This dish is described as a comfort food with a truly unique texture that will sooth your soul.
These paper-thin layers of pasta are guaranteed to melt in your mouth, and we enjoy them most with a glass of Nalle Ranch Red Estate Blend. This 94% Zin blend is complemented by the dry and fruity tones of Carignane as well as the added density and acidity from Petite Sirah, all carried in Nalle’s old vine Zin, aged in French oak barrels. Our Zin’s notes of raspberry, strawberry, and cherry meld perfectly with Catelli’s delicate lasagna.
Even if you are new to Catelli’s, you may have heard of their famous meatball sliders on Guy Fieri’s Diners Drive-Ins & Dives. This dish arrives as a trio of sliders, meatballs cooked to order, and covered in a light and flavorful slow cooked tomato sauce.
Our favorite pairing for this dish is our Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. We find the deep savory notes of the sausage and beef meatballs, bound in ricotta, are complimented by the supple layers of blackcurrant and dark cherry in our classic Cab. Yet more a congruent piquancy is also enjoyed with the inclusion of Catelli’s classically prepared tomato sauce.
Nalle Estate Cabernet is back by popular demand and set to release in fall of 2022.
