Percoche peaches in red wine is an everlasting recipe. It can be served either as an aperitif or as a dessert to end a summer meal.It consists of local summer fruit, diced and dipped in a red wine of your choice.
The wine we suggest in our recipe is Falorni Rosso D’Italia “Padre & Figlio” red wine. It is produced as a cuvée of three of Mezzogiorno’s best known grapes, Nero d`Avola from Sicily, Primitivoand Negroamaro from Puglia and Salento, the southern part of the Puglia region. Each grape type contributes with its characteristics and together this trio forms a dark and powerful red wine.

While we were planning this recipe, we realised that we had the task to pair not only the right wine, but also the best type of pasta for the meat-based sauce. There are countless shapes of pasta but not each of them matches well with every kind of sauce: Pappardelle is one of the best choice when it comes to the meat ragù. On the contrary, planning the choice of wine wasn’t that difficult.
With no doubt a bottle (or more) of Noelia Ricci, Godenza Romagna DOC Sangiovese Predappio, is one of the best wines to greater appreciate this hearty dish. This red wine, from sustainable farming, features a soft and savory flavor showing full ripe fruits, tobacco, and balsamico.

Pasta and Beans, or “Pasta e fagioli“, is a traditional Italian peasant dish of which there are different regional variations, but this one is from the Veneto region. It is an easy and cheap recipe made just with two main ingredients, precisely pasta and beans. I’m very fond of this recipe as it is one of those I inherited from my mother-in-law and I prepare for my husband when he wants to feel at home and he wants to eat something other than Apulian dishes… he is from the Veneto region, by the way!
Last time we ate Pasta and Beans, we uncorked a bottle of Amarone della Valopolicella 2014 DOCG “Sopra Sasso”, thanks to Vinimondo.dk. This robust wine, with dark cherry notes, made our dinner even more sublime.
