Wild mushrooms taste better with wine!
The wine tasted this episode – Guerrieri Rizzardi, Soave Classico Costeggiola. Hopefully you can buy online soon.
‘Chestnut gnocchi with wild mushrooms — made even better with a glass of Soave Classico!’
We often think of mushrooms as the red meat of the veggie world that demand savoury reds. But Paul’s dish is sweet, creamy, nutty, and I think a full-bodied white will be a better match.
I have a fantastic Guerieri Rizzardi single vineyard Soave ‘Costegiola’. It’s much richer and more complex than a basic Soave. Look how golden it is. That’s because the grapes have been fully ripened. There’s no need for oak, all the richeness and character comes from the grapes, local Garganega and Chardonnay grown on the rich dark volcanic soil.
I feel confident this will have the richness and freshness to be a gorgeous match!
Watch and see…Enjoy your gnocchi with a glass of Soave Classico!
