Wine connoisseurs assert that novice tasters should never pair red wine with fish, white wine with red meat, or excessive wine with jury duty. Lap up today's Groupon in moderate proportions: for $24, you get an Italian wine-flight package for one person at Campagna Salumi Bar & Pizzeria (a $55 value). The wine-flight package includes three glasses of wine (an $8 value each), a salumi and cheese plate (a $17 value), and an antipasto sampler (a $14 value).
Campagna Salumi Bar & Pizzeria infuses tongued caverns with flavor by pairing wines with authentic southern Italian nibblements. Patrons can swish three glasses of the week's featured wines, including two reds, one white, and zero blues, as teeth chomp on a chef's selection of three pieces of salumi, three cuts of cheese, slates of artisan flatbread, and sides of olives and balsamic glaze. An antipasto sampler fills plates with suppli, calamari peperonata, and sausages roasted in the wood-sourced flames of a traditional Italian Forno Bravo oven. The restaurant's vibrant yellow walls reflect the warm glow of candle-lit tables, shiny black booths, and Brite-Lites smuggled in under bulky suit jackets.
