  • Wine Spotlight | Bricco dell' Uccellone

    This iconic vineyard takes its name from the old woman who lived in the back house adjacent to the vineyard. The lady was always dressed in black and therefore given the nickname "l'uselun" ( which translates to big bird). Variety: Barbera Vineyard: Rocchetta Tanaro Maturation: 15 months of aging oak barrels & 12 months in a bottle Characteristics: Intense ruby red with purple hues. Notes of red berries, mint and vanilla. The bouquet is rich, aromatic and complex with a remarkable intensity and multilayered concentration. Pairings: Meat dishes, roasts and finely aged cheeses.

  • The White Truffle

    The authentic white truffle, known scientifically as Tuber Magnatum Pico, is only available for a short window during the calendar year. These culinary delicacies can be found only during the months of October, November and December. This species of truffle are considered to be the “King of Truffles”, not only for their exquisite taste, but also because of their renowned commercial importance. To spore and develop the white truffle requires a particular type of soil and very specific climate conditions. The earth surrounding the truffle must be damp for most of the year and it must also be rich in calcium with suitable air circulation. There are very few regions with these specific characteristics and environmental conditions and it is this factor that has led to the authentic white truffle becoming a very rare, and highly valued commodity in the culinary world. At Via Veneto we only use white truffles from the region of Alba – overnighted to us each week, ensuring superior quality and freshness. Truffles from Alba are considered the best in the world and we will tell you first hand, you can taste the difference.
