The exclusive wine dinner included a four course meal. As Chef Mauro originates from Milan, the four course meal celebrated the essence of Milan. The first course or il Primo consisted of soft smoked trout laid on sesame crispy bread with herbs cheese and green peas soup. It was rich in flavour and the Himalayan trout blended very well with Masseria Altemura – Fiano, a classic white wine which was full of aroma and mellow texture.

The second course or il secondo had a well-cooked saffron risotto with a touch of balsamic vinegar reduction. The risotto was complimented by a red wine Castello di Albola Chianti Classico which had a fruity finish and aftertaste.

The main course also known as the portata principale had slow cooked tender lamb shank accompanied by buttery mashed cardamom potato and porcini. It was accompanied by Masseria Altemura "Sasseo" Primitivo” ,a red wine with mouth filling flavour and highly mature fruitiness perfect for red meat.

The final part of the meal was a crispy hazelnut crumble tart accompanied by mascarpone coffee sauce. The dessert was paired with Zonin Moscato Spumante, a high quality aromatic sparkling wine with fresh aromatic tone of the Moscato grapes.
