Wild Boar Tortelloni with Burro e Salvia and Toasted Almonds - Brilliant with Barbaresco
Wild boar tortelloni with burro e salvia (butter and sage) and toasted almonds, which enhance the gamey flavour of the boar. Almonds are grown in the warmer region of Sicily, where they symbolise good fortune.
A rich and indulgent pasta made with delicious wild boar, burro e salvia (butter and sage) and toasted almonds deserves a truly special wine... run-of-the-mill plonk just isn’t going to cut it.
Gorgeously seductive and well structured with intense dark fruits in every glass. Barbaresco goes fantastically with anything game-y because it has those wonderful earthy notes that complement the wild boar flavour and really make it sing.
Top that off with sumptuously smooth, silken tannins that compliment the fragrant sage butter - and you've got a wine fit for the finest table… ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ from your dinner guests guaranteed!
