  • Often described as Italy’s greatest wine, the Barolo is made exclusively from the Nebbiolo grape — famous for its high tannin and acidity that smoothens out with age. The grape is indigenous to the Langhe region of Piedmont, and only bottles produced there can be labelled Barolo vintages.

    And what’s the best way to enjoy such a cherished wine? Cue Italian restaurant and lounge Zafferano’s expertise.

    This Thursday on 26 July, for one night only, experience the fruit of the famous Barolo terroir in a five-course dinner by head chef Emanuele Faggi with wine pairings from Damilano Wine Company- one of the oldest Barolo wineries.

    Guests will first be served canapes along with a glass of Roero Arneis Capural 2016. Once you’re settled, the antipasto of sliced cold veal served with tuna is paired with Barbera d’Asti 2016, a young red boasting fruity and light spicy notes.

    The climax of the meal is a full-flavoured veal tongue ravioli enjoyed with the highly-acclaimed Barolo Lecinquevigne 2013, then a pan roasted venison matched with Barolo Cannubi 2012, the Grand Cru of the Barolo.

    We’ll leave you to find out the oven-baked dessert, along with its fruity Moscato partner, for yourselves.
