Hello all - I'm going to Oliveto in Oakland tonight for a truffle celebration dinner. The list leans heavily toward Italy and I'm a bit out of my element, so I'm looking for suggestions. You can see the list here: http://www.oliveto.com/menus.html
I am much more familiar with California and France and favor the Rhone-style varietals (particularly Syrah) as well as Cali Zin. I am hoping for a primi of simple pasta or risotto with a heavy shaving of white truffle, then probably lamb or beef main. I'd like to keep it under $80 or so. Thoughts? Thanks!
