Spy Wine Notes: Piazza Transports Guests to Italy’s Piedmont Region

Share

Easton’s Piazza Italian Market has been setting a high bar with wine tasting events. This past week ended with an exceptional occasion where the guests were introduced to wines from the Piedmont region of Italy produced by the Malabaila di Canale winery ( www.malabaila.com ). The family proudly claims to have a winery that has produced wine since 1362. Today, the Malabaila estate consists of 150 acres with 22 separate vineyards.

Joining Piazza proprietor Emily Chandler to tell the story was Lucrezia Carrega Malabaila who traveled to the United States from her home in Roero, Italy. She represents the 65th generation of the family involved in the wine making business. Her travels throughout the U.S. are designed to share the exquisite and unique wine from one of Italy’s best known regions for Barolo and Barbaresco. Along with the exceptional wine selections – with sparkling wines personally developed by Ms. Malabaila – came a full four-course dinner prepared by the fine chefs of Piazza.

It was an evening a few hundred years in the making, and the perfect introduction to a vineyard that has much to offer all who enjoy fine sparkling, white and red wines.
