“Nebbiolo is not only the finest grape in the Piedmont region—it’s the best winemaking grape in all the world!” exclaims Ferraro. “I challenge anyone to find any wine anywhere else in the world that exceeds the Barolos and Barbarescos that come from this region of Italy.”
Under the direction of Gino Ferraro, Ferraro’s wine collection today rivals that found anywhere in the world. The wine list features 18 wines by the glass, several half-bottle and large-format selections, as well as an additional tasting list including more than one dozen rare labels available in one, three and five-ounce pours. Ferraro’s wine selection places special emphasis on presenting a broad and deep range of Italian wines such as Barolo from Bartolo Mascarello, Bruno Giacosa and Giacomo Conterno; Barbaresco from Marchese dei Gresy and Produttori del Barbaresco; Brunello from Biondi Santi; Amarone from Bertani and Montepulciano d’Abruzzo from Emidio Pepe. Ferraro’s has been recognized with Wine Spectator’s “Best of Award of Excellence” and the Wine Enthusiast award.
