A chic Hamptons party for vintner Alessia Antinori nearly went up in smoke.
Following a seated Italian feast, actress Jennifer Esposito’s designer top was too close to a votive candle and went up in flames, spies said.

Gabby Karan de Felice and Daniel Benedict hosted the dinner for Antinori, representing the 26th generation of her fancy wine family, at the new Tutto il Giorno in Sag Harbor.
Among the rest of the (unharmed) oenophiles were co-host Gianpaolo de Felice, Donna Karan, Kelly Klein, Sandy Brant, Cristina Cuomo, Kelly Rutherford, Andrew Saffir and Rosanna Scotto.
