After the success of last years Amazing Amarone dinner, Stefano Manfredi, along with special guest and leading Italian wine expert Michael Trembath invite you to join their table at Bells at Killcare for Brilliant Brunello – an intimate and exclusive dinner celebrating one of the very best wines in the world.
Michael and Stefano share a history of creating authentic Italian dining experiences and Michael, with his company Trembath and Taylor, was one of the first importers of quality new-wave Italian wines to Australia.
Brunello di Montalcino is one of the great wines of the world and is reflected in its lofty prices. Produced from a clone of the Sangiovese grape in southern Tuscany, Brunello is the greatest expression of that noble varietal albeit with some notable exceptions coming from Chianti Classico Riserva and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. Michael Trembath will take us through the differences between the two branches of the Sangiovese family- Sangiovese Grosso and Sangiovese Piccolo to better understand these exceptional wines. He’ll also take you on a tour of the area with stories and anecdotes of the personalities behind the estates and, of course, the recent scandals involving fake Brunello.
In collaboration with head chef Cameron Cansdell, Stefano has created a four-course menu, some dishes featuring fresh NSW black truffles, inspired by Michael’s selections of Rosso di Montalcino as well as Brunello from two of the leading producers and a rare Brunello Riserva.
An intimate event not to be missed!
