Triplo minestroneTHE HOUSE OF PAIRINGS | recipe of Davide Di Corato

Lightness in the palate and lightness in the wine, this proposed pairing for our triple “minsterone”, or vegetable soup,. How one could not think of Il Frappato, born from raspberries, blackberries, and violets, from spices such as sage on the palate.  ….complex aromas and a velvety but fragrant  palate, a Sicily which is brilliant in its freshness. A true wine with a smile …. drinking it, a happy face  can always  be seen.
