Identità Cortina 2015
A homecoming to one of the locations that has always had the strongest bond with our Group. In fact, at “Identità Cortina” the Santa Margherita, Kettmeir and Lamole di Lamole wines were chosen for original pairings with gourmet dishes presented by some of the most innovative Italian chefs.
Here are the dishes offered by these chefs, paired with our wines: Alessandro Favrin (La Corte del Lampone, Cortina): “Quails go to Ampezzo”, “Beef tartare with forest fruits and sauce made from Stravecchio cheese from Ampezzo”, “Fois gras and hazelnut lolly pops”, “Canaderli dumplings in ricotta cheese on Parmesan mousse” (paired with two aperitif wines: Prosecco Superiore Rive di Refrontolo Brut Santa Margherita and Kettmeir Grande Cuvée Pinot Bianco Spumante). “Tribute to the Dolomites” paired with Kettmeir Moscato Rosa Athesis Alto Adige 2011 presented by Riccardo Gaspari (El Brite de Larieto, Cortina). “Cheese sandwich”, paired with a goblet of Luna dei Feldi Alto Adige Doc 2014 Santa Margherita, “Tagliatella Transalp Express” in other words, when Monograno Felicetti tagliatelle go to the mountains…..” paired with Chianti Classico Etichetta Bianca 2012 Lamole di Lamole, presented by Norbert Niederkofler (St. Hubertus, San Cassiano-Bözen) and “Venison fillet with potato, wild blueberry and mushroom fritters” paired with Kettmeir Lagrein Riserva Athesis Alto Adige 2011.
To complement the presence of our Group, a picnic was organised on the lawns around Brite de Larieto, transformed for the occasion into a circuit made up of lots of delicious sampling stations. The hosts Ludovica and Riccardo Gaspari, together with Alessandro Favrin, Davide Scabin, the Sardinian Oliver Piras of the Aga restaurant in San Vito di Cadore in Belluno and Massimo Alverà from the Alverà confectioner's shop in Cortina d'Ampezzo supervised the event.
An outburst of flavours in the mountains pay a tribute to the wine and food culture of the Dolomites based on unique, original raw materials with a special focus on quality and wholesomeness: values that go hand in hand with our philosophy.
