Ferraro’s Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar will partner with Franco Wine Imports for its next unique Taste & Learn event to bring quality, small production and handcrafted Italian wines to Las Vegas on Saturday, Aug. 25, at 6 p.m.
Owner Gino Ferraro invites guests to experience some of Italy’s best family vineyards featuring traditional and lesser-known grapes loved for centuries in the villages of Italy. Throughout the evening, guests will be taken on a journey sampling exclusive wines served along perfectly paired small plates created by Executive Chef Francesco DiCaudo.
The night will start with a white wine from Bocale, located in the city of Montefalco in the Umbria region, followed by a Pinot Noir from the Veneto region. The latter will be paired with Chef Francesco’s Spaghetti al Caffe – coffee spaghetti, artichokes and veal sweetbread ragout.
Guests will also travel to Lanciola in Tuscany, which produces fine Chiantis and Sangioveses. Providing a sweet conclusion to the evening will be Chef Francesco’s Pinolata Senese – soft, toasted pine nut Siena cake with a vanilla pastry cream.
