pancetta peas and pasta

Five Days/Five Wines: Thursday 7th July
Lightly fried pancetta, warmed through petit pois, a few spoonful’s of Rodda’s Crème Fraîche turned through a plate of pasta plus a topping of chopped window-box chives – Friday evening dinner joined by twitter on the Xoom and John Snow on the telly engaged in the News of the World closure both over-shadowing a bottle of white wine. With such astounding news the wine is not taking centre stage.

It’s a Thursday night, Channel 4 News moves on to the last flight of the Shuttle, mine back to the pasta dish; quick and simple preparation, flavour engaging, filling and satisfying. Just the thing. The wine loses the fight for attention with the shuttle; the hefty spritz puts me off. Some might say it lifts the palate giving freshness, a zing. The alcohol is just 12.5%. The lemon meringue flavours are pleasant and works superbly with the pasta. On a Thursday night alongside unbelievable news with a sprinkling of spacey-stuff that is all you need.

The Ceretto Blange Arneis 2010, Piedmont, Italy [Adegga / Snooth] is to be available from Bibendum in their Summer Sale with a price of £10.88 down from (I have to say an expensive) £17.01. The Bibendum Sale is to run between the 19th July and the 1st August 2011. Over 250 wines will be included with discounts up to 50%.
