Really nice evening, the one spent on 17 May at Alma (the International School of Italian Cuisine), starring Chef Riccardo Camanini (Lido 84) and his menu, partially performed, with the students of the upper school course. The dishes, excellent, to accompany them the wines of Cantrina, the game consisted of some unusual combinations, the (passito) with an Oyster on a bed of Topinanbur cream and red Vermouth, or a creative version of Eggplant parmigiana with the Free Exercise of Style 2010 (rosé of petit verdot in purity matured in barriques)… beautiful, fun and dynamic. The combinations were presented by Roberto Gardini. Good guys! and thanks for the evening

Harvest 2019

Vendemmia Cantrina 2019
Autumn has FINALLY arrived. The long and hot Summer 2019, which lasted till October, is now behind us.  Now, the weather is inviting us to stay a bit in the house (or in the cellar) and is helping us to think straight…. That past season was, here in our area, one of the strangest and most complicated within recent memory. We found ourselves having to face conditions that were simultaneously both extreme and contradictory. The cold and rains during flowering caused a reduction in the potential crop, and two hailstorms in June and early August caused even worse damage, since they actually halved the crop.
