Meet the Producers- Enoteca Mercadante, November 19

If you haven’t made it out to Enoteca Mercadante on Corso Vittorio Emanuele yet, here is a chance to do so. Francesco and Stefano have an evening lined up that will be one to remember.

Trabucchi d’Illasi” located between Valpolicella and east of Verona is an organic winery. The land has been owned by the Trabucchi family since 1924, but their first wine was bottled in the seventies. As they present their wines, Mercadante’s chef, Luca Pipolo, will prepare dishes designed to match perfectly with each glass. The menu is as follows:

Spiedino di gambero lardellato con zuppetta di fagioli di Lamon


Risotto radicchio e Monteveronese


Brasato di manzo all’Amarone con stufato di verza e polenta croccante


Semifreddo al torroncino e caldo di fondente gianduja

The wines:

Margherita bianco ‘08

Valpolicella Sup. S.Colombano ‘05

Amarone della Valpolicella ‘04

Recioto della Valpolicella ‘05

The cost is 35 Euro per person. The evening should begin around 20,30/21,00
