Asparagi Grigliati | Grilled Asparagus

In my opinion, grilled vegetables tossed in EVOO and lemon juice is simplicity at its finest. I especially enjoy grilling asparagus at the height of its freshness in spring and summer. Spearing asparagus stalks with skewers makes it easier to flip and grill evenly on both sides. I always enjoy a chilled glass of Grechetto wine because it pairs so beautifully with asparagus, famously tough to match. Madrevite Elve’ solves the asparagus matching conundrum and takes this meal to new heights.
