Pumpkin and Fasolari gnocchi

 

WINE/VITIGNO IN PAIRING WITH THE RECIPE: Malvasia Istriana

 

 

 

Name of wine: Malvasia ‘Petris’ DOC Collio

Name of winery: Venica & Venica

REASONS FOR PAIRING:

Malvasia Istriana, a white grape of Greek origin, was brought to Italy by the Venetians during the Serenissima period via Dalmatia and Istria. In Friuli Venezia Giulia it has found its natural habitat, in Collio the sandstone marls give it aromaticity, freshness, flavour and minerality.

A complex wine that finds the right combination: the sweet tendency of the pumpkin gnocchi and the sea flavour of the fasolari meet the freshness and savouriness of the malvasia for a perfect closure of cleanliness and aromaticity.

HISTORY AND ANECDOTES OF THE RECIPE ‘PUMPKIN AND FASOLARI GNOCCHI

Pumpkin gnocchi is a classic dish in Friulian trattorias and homes, especially in autumn when it is found in abundance.

Fasolari are delicious molluscs with very soft flesh and a strong salt content. They are found in the Upper Adriatic area. Their habitat is the seabed, and their aesthetically pleasing shell in various shades of orange makes them suitable for refined and impressive dishes.
