We will turn our attention to Italy when Roland Marandino, the Wine Ambassador for Cecchi Winery and Sartori Winery visits The Carlton Restaurant to present a “Best of Italy” Wine Dinner. It is always fun to pair wines with Italian offerings because Italian wines are built for the table – complementing the cuisine.
We have three wines rated over ’90” points including a blockbuster Amarone/Chianti comparison course. This is an evening that will please the palate and Roland is sure to entertain and educate you about the world of Italian Wine!
