Sciacchetrà pairing suggestions?

I was just in Cinque Terre in Italy and picked up a bottle of Sciacchetrà, their local sweet wine. I'm trying to figure out a good pairing for it. My searches have revealed that it should be served at 10-14 degrees celsius, but not much advice on pairings with food. I found one restaurant menu pairing it with a gorgonzola and honey panna cotta, which sounds intriguing and I might try to replicate, but other suggestions would be welcome. Thanks.

  1. If I have a sweeter wine it usually goes very well with all sort spicy Chinese food.

    1. Something simple served after the meal, like almond biscotti.

      Like all dessert wines, what you pair with the Sciacchetrà should be less sweet than the wine itself, or the wine will taste sour.
