Montalbera Wine Dinner
Thursday, June 29th
For generations, the Morando family has believed and invested in Piedmontese viticulture. For years, they have passionately dedicated themselves to the development of the native variety Ruchè. Today, Montalbera arises as one of the great wineries of Piedmont. The foundation of their success lies in solid, recognizable values that translate very clearly in the wines they produce.
BEET & ORANGE SALAD
Micro green, candied pistachio and goat cheese
Calypsos Bianco 2016
Tropical fruit and cooked pineapple aromas follow through to a full body, with loads of spices, from cinnamon to clove and dried apricot. Long and very rich.
Béchamel sauce with fontina and pecorino cheese
Grignolino Grigne 2015
Strawberry and spice flavors pick up a light note of bitter almond in this tangy, light red with a Pinot-like minerality. Light in color but rich of beautiful flavor and style.
BUTTER POACHED LOBSTER
Toasted multi-grain crostini and crispy prosciutto
Ruchè La Tradizione 2015
Mint, sweet herbs, black cherry and tobacco mark this supple yet powerful red, which is balanced, with a vibrant structure.
Parsnip purée, mint demi glacé
Ruchè L’Accento 2014
Pitch-black cherry, ripe Italian red with sweet, pure fruit concentration. Silky tannins with plum, blackberry, smoky and subtle spice characters. Balanced, smooth and succulent finish.
LOCAL GORGONZOLA CHEESE
Barbera D’Asti L’Equilibrio 2012
Berries, cranberries and orange peel on the nose, with hints of toasted oak. Full-bodied with masses of dark berries, hints of vanilla, coffee and spice and a long, intense aftertaste.
Lemon curd and mint
Sparkling Grignolino Roseus Rosé
A nose of green tea and sweet boysenberry, charm of elegance and rose petal fruit – load the palate with real bubbly fresh fruit and a hint of bitter cocoa. Refreshing and clean.
