I splurged with a 2006 Barolo Pio Cesare (Nebbiolo) and 2005 Brunello di Monelcino Col d'Orcia (sangiovese grosso) to accompany the piece de resistance, a risotto with white truffles (above), accompanied by an elaborate green salad. I wanted to compare which was fuller bodied. The size of the crystal ( the brunello is to the left) indicates that the brunello won the contest. I owe apologies to Professor Mario Tredici of the University of Florence. You can't imagine what just this dish cost.
