White truffle season comes to Ferraro’s Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar beginning Oct. 1 through Dec. 31. Ferraro’s announces a special three-course dinner and Nebbiolo wine pairing during which guests will savor one of the season’s most indulgent ingredients—Italian white truffles.

Italian white truffles are widely regarded as the most exquisite of all truffles. Their season runs typically from late October to late December. Truffles grow in the wild, where they enjoy a symbiotic relationship with mature oak, beech and hazelnut trees, from which they draw carbohydrates while growing underground. For this reason, truffles cannot be cultivated. That fact, together with their unmistakably rich and umami-filled flavor, makes truffles a universally rare and sought-after ingredient.

This extraordinary White Truffle Dinner stars three Nebbiolo wines—each one paired with dishes incorporating shaved white truffle. The full menu follows:
