Risotto with asparagus 100 gr. - Casale Paradiso
Casale Paradiso was born in 1984, its passion is very more ancient. The Abruzzo land is its inspiring muse. Abruzzo is a small region between sea and mountains, it contains a synthesis of the perfumes, colours and Italian tastes. Nicola Mammarella is the partner founder and actual Administrator of Society. Behind his experienced and impassioned guide, Casale Paradiso in few years has succeeded in conquering an important place in the European gastronomic panorama.
The basic presupposition of the work of Casale Paradiso is that the nature gives us everything that we need. It is not necessary to add nothing. To be able to cook tasty and healthy dishes it is enough to take what the nature offers us trying to ruin it the less possible. With first quality raw materials it is easy to have first quality products. Chemistry is not necessary, it is enough the nature.
Nettles usually grow right next to rivers or on the edge of forests and is well known for its digestive characteristics. Nettles are harvested in spring and left to infuse cold in fresh grappa for about 45 days. Afterwards the liqueur is bottled with a fresh branch. This liqueur featured a herbaceous, slightly pungent taste.
The strength and warmth of grappa combined with the delicate flavour of fruit yields a brandy embodying the scents of the woods and mountains, all preserved by the skill of the master distiller using traditional South Tyrolean methods.
