“Anyone who tries to make you believe that he knows all about wine is obviously a fake.”
Leon Adams in The Commonsense Book of Wine
The Wine Cellar at PIERLUIGI RESTAURANT features over 1,500 labels, including many rare and exclusive vintages. We offer the finest Italian production, a selection of great French wine and Champagne and other excellent choices from around the world. In addition, there are the best of international distilled spirits and liqueurs. With a desire to satisfy the discerning tastes of an international clientele, Lorenzo Lisi selects an extensive variety of fine wine ranging from the traditional and classic to that of independent enologists, from experts who insist on maintaining the wine’s natural characteristics, to that produced at the world’s most prestigious Domaines and Chateaux.
Among the vaults of the ancient cellars of the historic Piazza De’ Ricci, entirely covered in natural materials such as wood, volcanic stone and glass, the Wine Cellar at Pierluigi Restaurant is both innovative and traditional. A monument in evolution in its own right, it was developed, embracing the vision of owner Lorenzo Lisi and Chef Sommelier Alessandro Tibaldo. This vision, while modern in its movements, remains essential and functional in its form, with respect for the past, yet attentively projected towards the future. The architecture has rendered it a magic place, austere and at the same time, convivial and welcoming.
Rich in atmosphere and history, the Wine Cellar is perfect for holding business meetings and reunions of international delegations. Heads of State, actors and other personalities who are searching for discretion, and fine wine and cuisine in a confidential and relaxed ambient, can comfortably enjoy exclusive dinners, memorable wine-tastings and inimitable events here. When required, we are fully able to provide the structural necessities for adequate national and international diplomatic security.
The Wine Cellar is divided into two settings: the Principal Room and the Private Room.
The larger Principal Room comfortably accomodates 36 people. At the center, there is an oval Imperial table with 22 seats, flanked by several smaller tables, suitable for 2 to 6 people. The Private Room, closed by a retractable door that can be opened only upon request, features comfortable leather armchairs and tables, ideal for savoring distilled spirits of the finest labels.
