I am trying to hung on to the last hot summer days, so I made pesche al vino, a refreshing dessert loved across Italy. It is one of those Italian dessert recipes that is delicious and light. It always looks beautiful served in wine glasses or glass dessert bowls. I like using rosé wine as it gives a lovely hint of pink to the peaches. Crunchy nectarines are my favourite for this particular dessert, but any type of peach will do.
4 nectarines, sliced into eight segments
200ml rosé wine (you can use white instead)
4 tbsp sugar
A few leaves of fresh mint and lemon balm, chopped
Add the sugar to the wine and blend it thoroughly until dissolved. Put the sliced peaches in the wine and stir in a few sprinkles of chopped herbs. Leave the peaches in the fridge overnight. Serve chilled in wine glasses or glass dessert bowls sprinkled with lemon balm, mint and a few sprinkles of sugar.
