Chickpeas and pumpkin are an ideal match for creamy soups. Rosemary is the aromatic plant par excellence to combine with an ideal dish to be enjoyed in the cold months.

Bellissime Rosé 2020, from the French winery Alain Jaume, is our suggestion. It is a wine from AOC Côtes du Rhône, made with Grenache, Syrah, Monastrell varietals. Appreciated for its notes of fresh flowers reminiscent of dog rose and peach blossoms. Fruity scent of red berries and light hints of walnut peach, closing with delicate notes of freshly cut field herbs.
