Cantina di Monteforte is a bright straw-colored with pleasant but subtle aromas of violets, citrus, almonds with a hint of minerals. On the palate, this 100% Garganega wine’s flavors include mild pear, lemon and slate, then finishes with almonds. This nuttiness pairs well with the pea sauce, and the wine’s light-to-medium body and backbone of cleansing acidity is nice with scallops. This is not a complex wine, which is the right call for the simple, clean flavors of Greg’s pasta dish.
Also pairs well with antipasto, cheese, chicken, fish, pasta, salad, shellfish, and shrimp.
