Matching Italian Food and Wine: Aromatic and Fragrant Oven Roasted Rabbit with Polenta – Ripresa Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Red Wine

This is winter comfort food at its finest! 

We absolutely love good rabbit meat dipped in a creamy polenta, especially when the colder months are finally here (we’ve been waiting for a little snow for sooo long!). Grab a glass of Ripresa Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Red Wine, sit back and enjoy!

This organic wine with its silky structure and its floral and fruity notes of blackberries will delight every wine-loving consumers.

*This wine is imported to Denmark by Vinimondo.dk, a wine wholesaler that works with some of the best wine suppliers in Italy, Portugal, France, and Spain. Drop by the new Vinimondo.dk showroom to taste or buy this Ripresa Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Red Wine.

Traditional Apulian Meat Roll – ups: le brasciole

When I was a child, in my house in Apulia, Sunday wasn’t a respectable Sunday without a succulent dish of pasta al ragĂą di brasciole. Despite the name the pasta sauce does not contain the brasciole (the meat roll-ups); these are served separately after the pasta (as a secondo piatto in Italian), always accompanied by some good wine, like the well known Salice Salentino or Negroamaro (which at the time I was of course not allowed to drink :))

Thanks to Fabio, a long time friend, for giving us advices about this brasciole dish.

Matching Food and Wine: Pork Loin Braised in Milk and Red Wine Primitivo di Manduria Dop

Finally a recipe with pork meat! We are delighted to share the first of our secret “Grandmother’s recipes” (called in Italian Ricette della nonna), Pork Loin Braised in Milk, that we’ve been lucky to inherited during the recent visit of the Mother – in – law of one of us.

We paired this tasty winter dish with a red wine: Primitivo di Manduria “Collezione Bellisario” 2016 – Cantine due palme.  This wine, made from 100% Primitivo grapes in the vineyards in the southern Manduria zone (Salento – Apulia Southern Italy), is characterised by a deep-red color, a juicy scent and lots of dark fruit, blackberries, spices.

This Primitivo di Manduria wine is imported to Denmark from Vinimondodk, a wine wholesaler that works with some of the best wine suppliers in Italy, Portugal, France and Spain. 

Stay tuned for the other Italian secret Grandmother’s recipes! 🙂
