Guinea fowl and Barolo Cannubi Riserva: a royal pairing

Reading time in

Faraona alle castagne

Such a “regal” fowl calls for a “kingly” pair.

For Christmas, Tenuta Carretta recommends a «royal» pairing. Guinea fowl stuffed with chestnuts and served with pomegranate sauce: a dish that celebrates excellent seasonal ingredients and an amazing treat for guests. This is the perfect Christmas dish: its full and enveloping flavor is the ideal match to a glass of Cannubi Barolo Docg Riserva 2015 – Collezione Rag. Franco Miroglio, the «King of kings». This Barolo truly embodies the elegance, finesse and incredible depth of the denomination.

The recipe is not complicated, but it requires about two and a half hours of preparation. For the filling, simply boil the chestnuts and stuff them inside the guinea fowl. The pomegranate sauce requires a separate preparation: this garnish will give the dish a sweet and sour touch, creating a delectable contrast of flavors.

The perfect pair for this dish is none other than our very own Cannubi Barolo Docg Riserva 2015 – Collezione Rag. Franco Miroglio.

White meat and Barolo might seem like a profanity.

But the succulent guinea fowl and its rich filling (made up of chestnuts, minced meat and sausage) perfectly balances the sip of Cannubi: its enveloping tannins cleanses the mouth and enriches the sweet and sour taste of pomegranate with a bouquet of red fruit preserved in alcohol, balsamic and spicy notes.
