A slice of heaven to get at the breakfast table, for an afternoon tea or to serve at the end of a meal. This Crostata is a perfect blend of sweetness and healthy products, as it is prepared with intensely flavored orange marmalade and mixed nuts. The marmalade we got to try (thanks to Delizie del Gusto) was like a home-made marmalade, not overly sweet but intense in flavor, and with a lovely rough texture.
If you decide to serve a slice of our scented crostata at the end of your meal, offer your guests a sip of a chilled Brachetto d’Acqui DOCG – Valle delle Rose sweet red wine. This is made from Brachetto grapes, grown & picked low yielding vineyards around Acqui in Piemonte, close to Alessandria. It has wonderful mouth-filling flavors of ripe red fruits, rose and citrus peel notes, which pairs perfectly with desserts and fruit.
*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 Brachetto d’Acqui DOCG – Valle delle Rose.
