Cannelloni and Refosco

When did you last see cannelloni on a menu? It was one of my favourite dishes when I was growing up then it seemed to vanish into the mists of time so it’s good to see it back at the boys from the Clove Club’s new restaurant Luca.

It’s quite a fancy version, mind you, filled with calves’ head ragu (‘course it is) with marjoram and artistic slicks of white sauce and tomato sauce - at the same time lighter and richer than the version I remember from my local trat.

It needed a wine with fresh acidity and got that in spades from a delicious 2013 Refosco Specogna from Friuli they have on their short but appealing wine by the glass list.

Valvona & Crolla and Wilde Wines stock the 2012 at £19.95 and £19.99 respectively. If you want to know more about Refosco consult Jancis Robinson et al's excellent Wine Grapes.
