Damiano Nigro Restaurant
Cleanliness, simplicity, elegant taste. Tradition evolves and meets haute cuisine without losing its nature, respecting three fundamental elements: quality ingredients, seasonality and avoiding waste.
This is Damiano Nigro’s cuisine, a Michelin-starred chef heading the kitchen of Palás Cerequio. Nigro hails from Apulia, carrying a humble past from the family farm and a long apprenticeship with the great masters of modern cuisine - Marchesi, Ducasse, Crippa - from whom he acquired the curiosity to experiment while fully respecting the raw material.
Nigro’s cuisine is capable of changing in a slow and steady manner without straining or forcing anything, always mindful of the quality of the raw materials and observing their seasonality.
A rigorous philosophy expressed in extremely formal and elegant dishes, consistent yet surprising, capable of capturing the essence of the Langhe using the universal language of great cuisine.
The Caveau of Barolo
Inside the eighteenth-century cellars of Palás Cerequio, the Caveau of Barolo lays in silence. Here is where the history of Michele Chiarlo winery resides: over half a century of Barolo vintages, from 1958 until present, are meticulously preserved, creating a unique collection of over 6,000 bottles of various sizes. Precious documents are preserved in the Caveau of Cerequio including the celebrated viticultural and oenological Monograph of the province of Cuneo, a volume written by Lorenzo Fantini in 1879.
