Radicchio with apple slaw and a Greek Passito

Written by Veronica Lavenia

The evolution of Italian home cooking does not erase traditions but renews and, in some cases, improves it. Attention to healthier cooking that emphasizes fruits and vegetables can give life to special creations. Red apples join the radicchio from Treviso and Sicilian Modica chocolate in a marriage of flavors that celebrate the north and south of the country with a salad of refined taste-

The suggested combo is Sunday Passito by the Greek cellar Mylonàs. The nose is a floral and fruity riot, where the fruity component is really important: yellow-fleshed fruit, reminiscent of yellow peach, apricot and ripe melon. Closing with a light note of herbs from the Mediterranean maquis. For the full review click here.
