The sweet delicacy of the white chocolate enhances the elegant flavor of the pistachio and makes this cake a simple but effective dessert, ideal accompanied by a sparkling. Asti from the Fontanafredda winery is our suggestion. 100% Moscato Bianco, it is recommended for: The perfectly balanced sip, sweet but not too much, fragrant that brings back the scent of the grapes in the cellar. Sample with an important taste-olfactory persistence. For the full review click here.
