corona di riso con funghi misti trifolati.jpegWe marry this plate, light but rich, for a winter which does not wish to go away, with our Cerasuolo di Vittoria which, with its elegance, is a lovely match to this rice ring with mushrooms.

The nose of Frappato, with its notes of violets and raspberries, invite tasting, as does the velvety palate of Nero d’Avola, where red fruit returns together with light sensations of chocolate.  They fuse with the flavors of cheese and the meatiness of the mushrooms. The wine marches alongside this delicious dish. As always, Cerasuolo di Vittoria is “food friendly”, a wine of good structure which speaks of Sicily in a modern and elegant way, it is a “classic” of ours and is aged in large oak casks for a period which is not excessively long.
2014 is  a felicitous year for this wine, entrusted to the knowing hands of winemaker Carlo Casavecchia.

We add Bidis Chardonnay to this  rich dish, one cooked in a light way and certainly wintery, a white wine of important structure  but only moderately alcoholic and warm, one which maintains its acidity. And which, thanks to our “white soil”, conserves its freshness. Its elegance is an excellent contrast to this typical plate of peasant tradition. Great balance on the palate.

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.

IMG_4376.jpgI cannot but combine the new vintage of Zagra, cricket with this dish, which brings with it the aromas of Modica, the call of the sea and a Sicilian lightness. A wine that has in its flavor and minerality its uniqueness that this year has been combined with the richness and creaminess of the warm 2017 vintage. Qualities that blend with the velvety in a harmonious palate.

Nothing better for a convivial table, with friends around the table, on a cold January evening. The heart will warm you and finally… the peelings of last week and the Moro Limited Edition!
