Piedmont Wine Tastes Just Fine

On Tuesday, September 21st, Morello Italian Bistro will host a wine dinner featuring the Piedmont vineyard, Marchesi di Barolo. As regular readers know, I'm a tremendous fan of Morello. The vineyard's fifth generation owner, Anna Abbona, will be available to tell you more about the products.

That on top of the fabulous cuisine of Chef Mark Medina-Rios will make this event one not to be missed. The evening begins with a reception at 7pm and dinner is underway a half hour later. The price for the event is $135, and that includes all of the expense.

The decadent and fabulous menu is as follows:

- Hors d'oeuvres paired with Gavi White Label 2009
- Primi: Squash Ravioli with sage butter paired with Dolcetto d’Alba "Madonna di como" 2008
- Secondi: Roast Halibut with rustic polenta, king oyster mushrooms paired with Barbera d’Alba “Ruvei” 2007
- Carne: Bistecca with celeriac root puree, black grapes paired with Barbaresco 2006 and Barolo 2005
- Dolci: Poached figs with almond gelato paired with Moscato d’Asti "Zagara" NV
