Lambrusco and Bollito Misto

Nicola Marzovilla invites you to I Trulli for a journey to Italy’s gastronomic heartland

Reggio Emilia's Piazza Prampolini

The Palazzo del Monte oversees daily life in Reggio Emilia's Piazza Prampolini.

Emilia-Romagna is rightly considered a culinary stronghold in Italy: a region whose best known cities — Bologna, Modena, Parma — are synonymous around the world with products which form the basis of Italian daily eating. Equally unique is to the region are its popular wines — the lively, sparkling Lambrusco is the typical accompaniment to the area’s hearty dishes and rich flavors.

Erbazzone, a spinach and cheese filled pie is a typical dish of Reggio Emilia.

As its hyphenated name clearly suggests, Emilia-Romagna was originally made up of two distinct areas, each with its own diverse taste and style. The unified administration shares a border with a total of six other Italian regions as well as ample Adriatic coastline, acting as something of a “keystone state” between Central and Northern Italy. It’s perhaps little wonder then that Emilia-Romagna enjoys its modern standing as Italy’s gastronomic heartland.

Emilian producer Lini has been making Lambrusco in Correggio (RE) since 1910.

The dinner will also showcase new vintages of some of our favorite wines by renowned Emilian Lambrusco producer Lini.
