I’m going to present you a popular cake, although there are many variations of this recipe. I love my own version of easy carrot cake recipe because it is made only with genuine ingredients and the resulting healthy cake is  moist and flavorful. I added to the recipe the elegant and fine “ Moscatello of Castiglione” wine. It is a dessert wine produced  in Abruzzo from muscat grapes dried  in the vineyard. Moscatello di Castiglione has a bright and intense straw-yellow color with a floral scents of mulberry and acacia. To the taste it has soft sensations of citrus fruits and ripe pineapple, passion fruit and ginger, with a keen final memories of mint and liquorice root. What is the perfect wine pairing for carrot cake? Enjoy a slice of carrot  cake with a glass of Moscatello wine, you will have an unforgettable experience.
