THE CHOCOLATE – WINE PAIRINGS: Donnafugata meets Guido Gobino
Mille e una Notte 2007 and Extra Bitter Cialdina with Cardamom: The fresh notes of cardamom and the aroma of Extra Bitter chocolate accompany the balsamic and fruity hints of Mille e una Notte. On the palate the dense and velvety tannins in the wine blend harmoniously with the intense aroma of the dark chocolate, a long lingering length.
Kabir, Moscato di Pantelleria 2011 and White Chocolate Cialdina with Pink Pepper: The immediate aroma of the Shinus Pink Pepper enhances the fruity and flowery bouquet of Kabir, bringing to mind the atmosphere of distant lands: on the palate the spice releases a wave of freshness which combines with the savory notes in the wine, giving rise to an interesting balance with the white chocolate.
