I am constantly in search of the best charcuterie plates in Manhattan and I think I may have found one of my top 5 at Osteria Morini in Soho.   This rustic Italian restaurant has a great selection of Italian meats and cheeses served with a generous portion of fresh bread.  When I come here, I almost always order this as a meal because I am usually too full for an entree afterwards!  Today's plate is all about the creamy spreadable Squacquerone cheese.  Squacquerone is an Italian fresh cream cheese with a tangy taste.  It pairs perfectly with bread and fresh prosciutto.  The other cheese I picked was a Carpa Sada which is a soft goat cheese with a sweet flavor and butter aromas.  To accompany my plate I paired it with a Tre Monti Sangiovese that is one of the smoothest reds I've had in awhile.  The combination is dynamite and makes the perfect app/drink pairing!  Since I popped in for a late afternoon bite, my outfit was super casual.  I wore a J. Crew Sweatshirt with J Brand jeans and Rag & Bone Booties.  I layered on the bracelets and rings to add a little shine.  

Tre Monti Sangiovese, $29.99 , purchase

What The Experts Say:

Thea Riserva opens with dark and austere notes of black licorice, tar, black cherry and crushed granite. There's a dusty quality to the close followed by a dry but fresh finish.

What I Say:

This is a super tasty classic red table wine that will go with pretty much any Italian dish.  Not too sweet and sightly tangy I couldn't think of a better compliment to this cheese plate!
