FERRARO’S ANNOUNCES NEXT TASTE & LEARN FEATURING PIEDMONT’S PAITIN
WINERY, SATURDAY, MARCH 28
Ferraro’s Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar invites guests to experience the next Taste and Learn, taking place Saturday, March 28 at 5 p.m. Taste & Learn is Ferraro’s popular, monthly wine-tasting dinner that provides illuminating wine education along with expertly prepared, authentic Italian small plates prepared by Executive Chef Francesco DiCaudo.
Each Taste & Learn offers a tour through some of Italy’s most intriguing wineries. March’s event spotlights Paitin from Piedmont, Italy. The Paitin winery, owned by the Pasquero-Elia family, was established in 1796 when Benedetto Elia purchased the farmhouse, wine cellar and surrounding vineyards from Luigi Pelissero, but the location’s wine-producing roots date as far back as the eleventh century. Paitin is known for its old vine parcel of Sori Paitin within the Serraboella cru; Serraboella represents one of the more structured crus in Barbaresco, like Montestefano or Albeisa.
As always, Ferraro’s award-winning chef will prepare imaginative dishes to accompany each wine. The full menu follows:
Vermentino Argiolas Costamolino 2018
Gambero e Ricotta
Mediterranean prawn, sheep’s milk ricotta, stone fruit
Paitin Nebbiolo Ca Veja, 2016
