Description

Spaghetti alle Vongole is the most popular seafood dish in Italy.

Spaghetti with clams is a pasta dish, based on few ingredients: wheat pasta, EVO, garlic, chili, parsley and clams.

The dominant flavors are the sapidity of the clams and the oil, garlic, chili combination.

The ideal wine has softness and minerality. Best choice are volcanic whites from Southern Italy. A perfect Mediterranean marriage!

In the mood for bubbles? Try a Blanc de Blanc.
