Description

Guests are invited to take a journey through the Piedmont region of Italy, known for rich, savory food like truffles and slow-braised beef, which pair well with the powerful and tannin-heavy wines produced in the region. Piedmont is ideal for growing wine where the Nebbiolo grape thrives.

The full three-course Taste of Piedmont menu includes:

 

  • Piccolo Peppers – Arancini stuffed, mozzarella, tomato jam.
    • Paired with a Damilano Arneis – Pale straw yellow with a delicate, enjoyable nose of fresh fruit, peach and apricot. Dry and fresh with elegant flavors and a moderate acidity. It’s a smooth and juicy sip suitable for appetizers, fish courses and white meat.

 

  • Tagliatelle Tartufo – Truffle pesto, pine nuts, shaved black truffles.
    • Paired with a Falesco ‘Ferentano’ Roscetto – Rich gamut of aromatic sensations ranging from banana to pineapple. The flavors are assertive, rich, soft and full with a superior, long and lingering finish.  

 

  • Brasato Al Barolo – Veal short rib, parsnip puree, Barolo reduction, sage gremolata.
    • Paired with a Pico Maccario ‘Lavignone’ Barbera – Bright and aromatic with aromas and flavors of red cherries, violets and wild herbs.
