Not only has Fancis Ford Coppola produced some great films, but he has also produced some phenomenal wines! At Maggiano’s we feature four of his wines on our wine list and each one of them complements a different dish. This month I would suggest trying the Coppola Claret with our Fettuccine Bolognese with Veal and Ricotta Meatballs—makes the perfect pair! Below are the tasting notes for each of the wines we feature on our list.
