Ferraro’s Italian Restaurant and Wine Bar will host their popular monthly wine tasting event, “Taste & Learn,” on Nov. 21 from 4 to 6 p.m. Guests at these monthly wine-and-food pairing events enjoy tasting pours of four wines, each accompanied by an authentic Italian small plate.

November’s event features the highly regarded wines of Pio Cesare winery. Founded in 1881, Pio Cesare winery was one of the first wine producers to recognize the great potential of the Piedmont wine-producing area. Pio Cesare owns more than 130 acres of vineyards throughout northern Italy, yet the winery produces limited quantities of wine to ensure its high quality standards.

This month’s wine and food presentation includes:

  • L’altro Chardonnay, Pio Cesare, paired with capesante scottate – seared sea scallops prepared with the flavors of autumn
  • Barbera d’Alba, Pio Cesare, paired with in house-made ricotta and seasonal vegetables
  • Barbaresco DOCG, Pio Cesare, paired with vitello tonnato – chilled veal loin topped with tuna mayonnaise spread
  • Barolo DOCG, Pio Cesare, accompanied by cappellacci di bue brasato – ravioli filled with beef short rib, celery and parmigiano reggiano

Under the direction of Gino Ferraro, Ferraro’s wine selection places special emphasis on presenting a broad and deep range of Italian wines, such as Barolo from Bartolo Mascarello, Bruno Giacosa and Giacomo Conterno; Barbaresco from Marchese dei Gresy and Produttori del Barbaresco; Brunello from Biondi Santi; Amarone from Bertani and Montepulciano d’Abruzzo
from Emidio Pepe.

Ferraro’s has been recognized with Wine Spectator’s “Best of Award of Excellence” and the Wine Enthusiast award.
