Located in that same location right in the heart of Old Riga, Monterosso is Riga’s restaurant of choice when it comes to our good old friend - fine Italian cuisine and wine. Over the years we have gotten used to Monterosso’s superb Italian all-star wine list – it’s full of surprise cuvees and producers as well as contains an array of confident benchmark choices of Italy’s most famous wine names. However, it’s fascinating to see that Monterosso has not been sleeping on its laurels – its champagne list, for example, has gotten stronger and stronger, and now includes many fun grower names. And you certainly wouldn’t want to miss their Brunello di Montalcino list – especially those back vintages of Fuligni, Silvio Nardi and Biondi Santi. Make sure you support Monterosso with a little festa italiana during these hard times… (and even if you don’t like Italian wines at all – there’s 2005 d’Yquem available by the glass).
Currently: Monterosso is open through the week from Monday to Saturday and during the Covid crisis their food and wines are available to order online for delivery directly from the restaurant or with the limited selection also through WOLT app.
Our choice: How about an easy going and ready to drink vintage of 2008 Fuligni Brunello di Montalcino (€113)? Cheers!
