Reflections Presents Ruffino Wine Dinner at Caravelle Hotel, Nov 21

The finest Sangiovese grapes from the most exceptional estates in Tuscany together with five courses of delectable gourmet cuisine are all the stars of the Caravelle’s Ruffino Wine Dinner this November 21. Made from grapes grown in the winemaking heart of Italy, Chianti Ruffino is renowned as one of the first wines to cross the country’s border and for its role in introducing Italian wines to the world. Ruffino’s brand ambassador in Asia, Mr. Alan Wong, will represent the winery and the Folonari family at Reflections Restaurant, where guests will sample six vintages from Ruffino’s legendary cellars.

The evening begins with canapés and welcome drink of Orvieto Classico DOC 2011. A stellar Riserva Ducale Chianti Classico 2007 will be served with the fourth course of roast beef tenderloin with breaded artichokes, smoked potato puree and tarragon-flavoured bacon mushroom ragout.
