You will learn how to drink and taste the wine, the differences between colors and perfumes, accompanied by introduction about the area where the wines are produced and the winemaking process.
Tasting is offered in a traditional Enoteca (Wine Bar) located in the heart of Rome close to the Coliseum. With the wooden booths and a wide antique shop counter this longtime wine bar is an authentic spot. Enoteca Cavour 313 shelves are lined with carefully selected bottles produced by prestigious and emerging wineries. An inviting selection of regional cheeses, premium salami and high-quality ham complement the wines of successful Lazio wineries.
The creation of a perfect paring between food and wine in examples:
– a glass of Bellone, Trebbiano or Malvasia puntinata, antique local white grape varieties paired with Rome’s ricotta (ricotta romano), a rich and flavorful by-product of pecorino and romano pecorino Romano,a typical salty hard cheese from Lazio or other local cheesse
– a glass of Nero Buono or Cesanese, traditional, antique varieties of red grapes, cultivated in the hills of Cori the first and in the hillside beneath Olevano Romano about 50 km South-East from Rome the second, combined with premium salams and flavorful hams or porchetta, a spit-roasted pig stuffed with wild herbs.
These menus offered are only examples of the quality of the products, which can be changed with seasonal food.
