Vietri Fauna The work of maestro artisan, Gianluca Fabbro, is often recognized by a bold array of colors coupled with an innate attention to detail through his handpainted sponging technique. Fauna combines the outline of the classic hunting bird paired with nature’s greenery to depict what is commonly found during the hunt (la caccia) in Umbria, the Italian land known for capturing wild pheasants.

Wine of the Week
Laurent Perrier NV Brut “The latest rendition of Laurent-Perrier’s NV Brut is showing nicely, wafting from the glass with scents of almond paste, iodine, white peach, warm biscuits and mandarin. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, with an elegant, lively profile, displaying a youthfully frothy mousse, good tension at the core and an attractively chalky finish. This is an excellent non-vintage wine that seems to reflect the maison’s efforts to improve their grape sourcing over the last few years.” 91 Pts Wine Advocate $39.99/btl
