Woolworths new Italian range

Woolworths has expanded its popular range of fresh, quality Italian cuisine and will now have new pastas and pestos on offer accompanied by a range of Italian wines.

by: Food24 | 20 Jun 2007

The Woolworths imported pasta range includes both new fresh egg flat and filled pastas that include gorgonzola and walnut ravioli, roasted vegetable girasoli and porcini mushroom tortelloni. The pastas are prepared with durum wheat and spring water, and the delicious fillings are guaranteed fresh. Best of all these pasta dishes can be cooked in just minutes and it won’t break the bank at an average price of R35 for 250g.

The new locally-made filled pastas offer a contemporary take on the Italian classics, making use of innovative flavour combinations, all prepared in the real Italian way. Highlights of the range include a variety of pastas filled with roast butternut, chilli and sage and slow roast beef ravioli.

Woolworths has six easy drinking and moderately priced wines in their Italian range.

Cape wine master and Woolworths wine selector, Allan Mullins travelled the length and breadth of Italy to select these wines.

They have two bubblies on offer the Pinot Grigio Brut and Pinot Grigio Blush. These extra dry and very enjoyable spumantes are priced competitively at R50 each.

Woolworths has two whites in the range: the Pinot Grigio 2006 and Frascati 2005. From the Pinot Grigio you can expect an easy drinking wine with melon and lime flavours, while the Frascati’s precarious acid balance and nutty flavours might not be to everyone's taste.

The range is completed by two reds: the ever popular Chianti 2005 with its signature black fruit aromas and the Valpolicella 2005. The Valpolicella is a light red and a food friendly wine that will find many a friendly palate in SA.
