A PIECE OF ADVICE... Its intense and rich aroma, with a gentle tendency to sweetness, is enhanced raw in mayonnaise, in sauces to accompany boiled or fish dishes, in pasta or rice salads, with goose liver. Also ideal with spicy and seasoned cheeses, first of all Parmigiano Reggiano. On the fire it becomes a tasty companion to the beef tenderloin, and it is precious to whisk the risotto, especially with vegetables or scampi
