at The Venetian will host a first for Las Vegas: a multi-course feast centered around the first pressing of extra virgin olive oil from the Medici-era villa, Tenuta di Capezzana (Italian for the “estate of Capezzana”).

Guiding the guests through this journey incorporating unique flavors and dishes will be Beatrice Contini-Bonacossi, whose family owns Capezzana, the 345-acre farm that has produced olive oil and wine since the times of Charlemagne (742 – 814). During the dinner, she will discuss the unique history of the estate, as well as the oil-making process.

Located in Carmignano, Tuscany, at Capezzana, olives are picked before the first frost. Within 24 hours of the harvest, they are immediately crushed, which reduces the possibility of oxidation of the picked fruit. Continuous cycle olive processing is Capezzana’s extraction technique of choice. The mash is then put through a double centrifugal decanting, a milder means of separating the solids from the oil. The oil is then stored for a few weeks to decant naturally. Capezzana’s processing produces an extra virgin olive oil remarkably low in oleic acid, rarely exceeding 0.2 percent. The unfiltered, estate-grown oil is then bottled and sold. Its tasting notes include an aroma of fresh-cut grass and almond. A buttery, mild, fruity beginning fills the mouth with a delicate flavor of herbs and green olive with a delightful spicy note at the finish.

The one-night-only menu will include:

First Course
Trio of crostini-chicken liver, cavolo nero and traditional “Fett’unta”

Second Course
Insalata Pinzimonio

Third Course
Tuscan Ribollita

Fourth Course
Tordelli with Swiss chard and ricotta

Fifth Course

“Earlier this year, I was fortunate to travel to Italy to see the estate and watch the pressing in person,” says Chef Nicole Brisson, culinary director, Batali & Bastianich Hospitality Group. “Our team had a wonderful time partnering with Manicaretti Italian Food Importers to put together this menu and look forward to seeing our guests for this unique dinner after the new year.”
