Recipe Thursday: Classic Sardinian Pairing

We’ve said it many times here on Recipe Thursday: Some of the best pairings are those in which the food and wine come from the same origin. There’s nothing like a bottle of wine made from local, indigenous grapes paired with a culinary regional specialty. This week we’re featuring a classic pairing from Sardinia: Malloreddus alla Campidanese (Gourmet Traveller) and Antonella Corda Cannonau di Sardgena.

Malloreddus alla Campidanese is a traditional Sardinian pasta recipe made with sausage, tomato and saffron sauce. With a dish as rich and as intense in flavor as Malloreddus alla Campidanese, you’ll want a Sardinian wine with some body and dark fruit. Look no further than Cannonau, a delicious, bold red wine native to Sardinia. It matches perfectly with the deep flavors of the sauce and the sausage in the pasta.
