I am just a bit concerned that the Amuse will be a bit too putsy and that we are changing wines for just a bite or two.

Hi Gary -- I don't mean this in any sort of unfriendly way, often spelling is a touchy subject -- but I think you might be making menus and I just thought I'd go thru what you posted, see below.

It sounds like a spectacular meal, and a very creative approach to providing some really delicious combinations.

I don't really see how I could improve it. How are you going to use the 3 Veneto wines with the osso buco?

Hey, I'd go to that dinner.
OK, so hard to argue with antipasti and bubbly!
The amuse sounds great. Cremant d'Alsace is fine, though not sure you need to have a wine for an amuse.
Scallops with salmon tartare- Is Quince a winery, or are you saying a SB with quince flavors?
Shrimp with garlic,I could see Austrian SB working, though not first thought! I love FX Pichler's Riesling,would love to try SB
The Osso Bucco sounds great. But are you talking 3 wines- a Valpo Classico, a Valpo Ripasso, and an Amarone? Valpo Classico I can see, but Amarone (or Amarone styled) seems heavy for veal to me. Personally I'd look west not east, and go with Piedmont.

I think your concern is well placed so don't do it, just make the Prosecco last a little longer.

I'd probably agree unless there will be a bit of time spent with the amuse for some reason.

Looks really good, overall.

That would be my second choice. First would be to couple the amuse with the next course and that sauv blanc, so that when the guests sit down (I presume the prosecco/antipasti will not be seated) they start with a fresh, new wine and the rest of the menu.

One other thing for Gary, to consider giving that sorbeto a savory element. Basil works beautifully with citrus fruit and would integrate the sorbet more effectively into the overall meal.

I agree that you have a lovely menu here. I also agree that I would not allocate a wine just for the amuses... either keep the prosecco going or start the sauv blanc sooner. I also agree that the sorbet must be really, really _not_ sweet; introducing an herbal element would work. I am not worried about three big wines with osso buco. I do wonder whether the limoncello will be overkill... with so much food there might not be much room left for a fourth sweet thing (and I'm not even including the amarone).

See my note, I'm pretty sure he means to serve a Quincy... as in "Can See" not John Q Adams.
