Food & Wine Pairing: Penne with Leeks & Gorgonzola paired with Nino Franco San Floriano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG
Christy Canterbury, Master of Wine, shares her recommended wine pairings with this four ingredient pasta dish.
“There are only four ingredients in this pasta, not counting the salt and pepper, so each makes its presence known. Yet naturally, the leeks and gorgonzola dolce stand out. Those two each give this dish a pleasant contrast of a hint of sweetness along with savory earthiness. That’s an unusual combination to find in wine. However, it’s one that a range of Prosecco Superiore DOCG styles can cover with ease. Furthermore, Prosecco’s lightness will match this pasta’s mid-weight palate.”—CHRISTY CANTERBURY
