Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus | 15 Minutes Asparagus is rich in almost everything that's good for you. Thankfully, it is also delicious. Then, wrap it in a bit of salty meat, give it a fresh squeeze of citrus and it only gets better. That's what makes Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus such a delicious, nutritious treat. Wine Pairing for Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus: White Wine - Asparagus is a beloved Germanic staple. White Asparagus is the most favoured variety, but it is loved in all forms. So, it only seems right to turn to a German Riesling for the wine pairing, (or failing that one from Alsace). Riesling has citrus notes to elevate the lemon juice, while retaining a light enough profile to not overwhelm the asparagus. Add to that a good amount of acidity to work with the salty, fatty prosciutto. Delicious!
