Make your reservations for an elegant 4 course wine pairing dinner at Nashville’s Abruzzese-inspired Italian dinner that will be a perfect pairing with Jackson Family Wines. Trattoria Il Mulino presents the rich rustic flavors of Abruzzo, Italy’s cuisine combined with a touch of Nashville’s local culinary flavors.
Here is what’s on the table from Executive Chef Tom Cook and wines paired by Sommelier Rob Guimaraes:
Second course: Granny smith apple salad with endive, spiced pumpkin seeds, candied pecans, Craisins and gorgonzola cheese paired with a 2013 La Crema Pinot Gris.
Third Course: Trio of duck entrée, made with foie gras Amarena cherries, fig marmalade and mascarpone risotto paired with a 2011 Benvolio, Rosso.
Dessert Course: Beautiful almond pear tarte made with cinnamon crumble, vanilla bean crème, anglaise and local wildflower honey and an Asti Spumante from Piedmont, Italy.
This is sure to be a fabulous dining experience with perfectly paired wines. I am particularly excited to let you know about my friend and Trattoria Il Mulino’s new face of Sommelier Rob Guimaraes. Guimaraes joined the restaurant in July 2016 as its beverage manager and sommelier. He is a Certified Sommelier from the Court of Master Sommeliers as well as a Certified Specialist of Wine from the Society of Wine Educators. Trattoria Il Mulino recently received the Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator, the world’s leading authority on wine. Along with Rob, Representatives from Lipman Brothers will be on hand to discuss the wines and their characteristics.
The Sept. 21 dinner is from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. located in one of Trattoria Il Mulino’s private dining areas.
