A rather splendid version was served at a little Chelsea-based Italian restaurant and accompanied the Nino Franco Cartizze Prosecco sublimely. Has to be one of the most perfect food/wine matches I’ve enjoyed. The steep Cartizze hill produces the ‘cru’ wines of Prosecco. Generally these are made with a higher sweetness and therefore perfect with lighter desserts. I have a feeling my Italian Carrot Cake would also make a sublime accompaniment.
Nino Franco Cartizze Prosecco is this weeks Sunday Wine Shot.
