After four days immersing in nebbiolo it was time to have a final meal together. And what a great surrounding, the floodlit castle at Grinzane Cavour with Marc Lanteri's great and inventive plates, yet excellence in tradition. Starter is an interesting vegetable veloute based on...More

Description
The creative inspiration of Marc Lanteri originates in his intuition and instinct of the moment: everything is reinvented and reinterpreted by Marc using only local ingredients while respecting the rhythm of the seasons. The results are his amazing dishes, which give us a taste of emotion tied to the memory of the past and present made ​​by a great chef . In the dining room Amy Bellotti, sommelier by profession and vocation, is dedicated to the perfect combination of seasonal flavors and the fine wines of Piedmont.
