I am Rosario Del Nero, Bertucci’s Executive Chef.I have spent the last few decades sharing my passion for great-tasting food with my family and friends at Bertucci’s, and now I am thrilled to join forces with Antinori—one of Italy’s premier winemakers—in bringing you signature food and wine experiences from the north, center, and south of the Italian peninsula.
Bertucci’s food culture is solidly rooted in the timeless art of brick-oven cooking. That’s why we are delighted to take you with us on a culinary “Tour of Italy” through the taste and textures of nine new iconic pizzas, paired perfectly with elite Italian wines from Antinori.
You will find that the deep aromas of cherry and plum of Prunotto’s Barbera are a perfect match for the rich and complex flavors of Northern Italy like prosciutto, preserved figs and Gorgonzola. Santa Cristina Chianti Superiore and Antinori’s legendary Chianti Classico from Tuscany complement our handcrafted polpette and fire-roasted zucchini. The bold flavors of Tomaresca’s Apulian wine Neprica match the robust spices of our Calabrese sausage pizza. For Venetian shrimp or luscious burrata cheese, Antinori’s Tuscan White Blend is pure magic!
We at Bertucci’s are as passionate about food as Antinori is about wine.
