MATCHING: We tried this recipe with a rosé wine Umbria Igt, produced by the company The Palerna. The wine, which is called 'Rosa di Martino', It is pleasantly fresh with hints of flowers and citrus fruits, with a structured palate between fruity and mineral, and an acidity that makes it suitable for this dish in balance between the sweet sensations of the pumpkin and the terrestrial flavors of lentils.
