Truffles are just now coming on, I encountered my first exceptional truffles last night, at the back door of Ristorante Antine in Barbaresco–I didn’t have to put my nose to it, it overwhelmed me from across the kitchen. Prices remain very low. We won’t be able to set the price for Oliveto Truffle dinners until we actually acquire them, but they should be a bargain.
Truffle Dinners at Oliveto are always a great excuse to pull out some older bottles of wine from our cellar. I talked with Aldo Vacca of Produttori del Barbaresco and asked him to recommend some Produttori vintages that are drinking great right now and would pair well with truffles.
