On Tuesday, February 19, Siena Ristorante Toscana will be presenting a very special dinner featuring some of Italy’s best wines and two of its most famous winemakers.
We couldn’t be more thrilled to be hosting Matteo Sardagna (above, right), legacy owner of the Einaudi winery in Piedmont (northwestern Italy). Not only does his family own of the most celebrated wineries in the world, but it also known for its many luminary members.
His grandfather, Luigi Einaudi, was the second president of Italy after World War II. He is the cousin of the critically acclaimed Italian pianist and composer Lodovico Einaudi. And his father, Giulio Einaudi, founded the eponymous Einaudi publishing house, widely regarded as one of the world’s top publishers of classic, modern, and contemporary works of literature.
Matteo will be joined by Manuel (Marcarini) Marchetti of the Piedmontese winery Marcarini. Widely revered as one of the greatest producers of traditional style Piedmont wines, Manuel is one of the preeminent authorities in the world of Italian wine today.
Especially for the “wine nerds” among us, there couldn’t be a more informed or more engaging expert to interact with. His family’s Marcarini estate is considered to be one of the most iconic among Piedmontese grape growers and winemakers and the wines are the result of his family’s unbending passion and devotion to their land.
It’s going to be a night to remember.
And Chef Harvey has created a special tasting menu especially for the occasion (click here for menu and wines).
