Kilkenny’s Ristorante Rinuccini Celebrates 30 Years

Antonio Cavaliere

Ristorante Rinuccini in the heart of Kilkenny is celebrating 30 years in 2019, with an exclusive Barolo wine dinner taking place on Tuesday, January 29th.

The wine dinner is being hosted by Enzo Brezza from Azienda Agricola Brezza Giacomo & Figli, and will be the first in a series of events taking place throughout 2019 to celebrate the restaurant’s 30th anniversary.

On the evening, Enzo will pair a selection of wines from his award winning vineyard with dishes from an eight course menu of typical Piedmontese dishes, created by Rinuccini’s executive chef, Antonio Cavaliere. Dishes will include seared carpaccio of fillet of Kilkenny Rosé Veal with marinated fresh tuna and aioli served with Chardonnay Langhe DOC; chef Antonio’s hand cut organic fresh pasta with wild boar ragu served with Dolcetto D’Alba DOC; a sorbet of fresh figs marinated in Grappa di Barolo; and a plate of Italian cheeses with Barolo Classico DOCG.

Situated in the Piedmontese village of Barolo, the estate’s wine portfolio is dominated by its DOCG-classified Barolo wines and in 2018 the family vineyard celebrated achieving organic certification for its production methods.

Rinuccini, owned by Antonio Cavaliere and his family for 30 years, specialises in classic Italian cuisine made with a fusion of Irish and Italian ingredients. Chef Antonio has gained many accolades during this time, including Chef of the Year, and under this guidance Ristorante Rinuccini has been listed in the Michelin Guide every year since 1994.

This exclusive Barolo Wine Dinner will take place on Tuesday 29th January at 7pm and is priced at €80 per person. For more information or to book, visit
