Moscato rosa is a very unique wine from South Tyrol. Its intense bouquet of rose petals harmonizes well with the pistachios, while the lemon in the cream lends a nice touch of acidity to the wine’s mouth feel.
In a standing mixer, beat egg whites until foamy. Add confectioner’s sugar and food coloring and continue to beat until stiff white peaks form. Sift ground almonds through a sieve into egg whites and gently fold in by hand.
Preheat oven to 140°C/285°F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat. Pipe batter onto baking sheet to form poker chip-sized rounds, taking care to leave space between each. Gently tap baking sheet on kitchen counter to release air bubbles. Allow to sit at room temperature for approx. 30 min. Bake in a preheated oven at 140°C/285°F for approx. 10 – 12 min. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
In a standing mixer, beat together butter and confectioner’s sugar until butter is white in color. Add marzipan, lemon zest, chopped pistachios, lemon marmalade and continue to beat until creamy and smooth.
