The “orecchiette” are a type of pasta typical from the Southern Italian region of Apuglia, which counts at least 25 C.D.O wines (Controlled Designations of Origin) including the Castel del Monte Chardonnay.
This type of pasta is made of common wheat and water and is kneaded by handed – it traditionally comes with a seasoning of broccoli rabe, and chili peppers. A more summer-friendly version has the pasta seasoned with fresh tomatoes, arugula with a drizzle of olive oil, and serve it while still tepid.
The Castel del Monte Chardonnay wine is appreciated for its extraordinary fragrance well-suited to accompany this type of pasta dish.
Its bouquet is characterized by delicate, refined flavors of exotic fruits such as pineapple, papaya, pink grapefruit, mingled with floral notes of broom flower. Fresh to the palate, with a well-balanced structure and long-lasting persistence and finish.
Don’t miss the pairing of these flavors with the intense mineral scents of S.Pellegrino water.
