Parusso Wine Dinner at Ecco

Meet master winemaker, Marco Parusso, aka “The King of Barolo” at Ecco‘s next wine dinner on Tuesday, September 4 at 6pm.

He makes supreme wines from perhaps Italy’s best wine region and from one of our favourite grapes: Nebbiolo. His style of winemaking is fruit forward and powerful but with plenty of grace and bucket loads of character and typicity. Meticulously produced, all the wines have a certain shine and polish and drink superbly.

Executive Chef Craig Richards has designed a 4-course menu of perfectly paired dishes to showcase the rich, complex flavors of each blend.

First Course
Redfish crudo with veal tartare
Tonnato sauce
Cimino Farms pears, basil, pink peppercorns
