Nicola Marzovilla is 50!

I Trulli owner chalks up a half-century

It’s a long road from Rutigliano, Puglia, 1959 to New York City, 2009, but Nicola Marzovilla has made the journey, and he’s got the jersey to prove it! Last Saturday, family, friends and colleagues threw a surprise party to celebrate the I Trulli owner’s healthy arrival at this greatest of milestones.

For this secret occasion, I Trulli chef Patti Jackson (above with Nicola and his mother, Dora) created a coffee-and-chocolate cake (Nicola’s favorite) scale replica of Massoferrato, Nicola’s first wine from his own estate, which he launched on Monday. For once, Nicola was left speechless. Well, almost…

Auguri Nicola!
