This simple dessert sings with flavor and complexity from the combination of floral apples, sweet honey, and assorted pistachios, almonds, and filberts (a.k.a. hazelnuts).
Beverage pairing: Fèlsina Vin Santo, Italy. A simple, clearly flavored dessert like roasted apples and nuts needs something classic and elemental to show it off. Vin Santo, a wine made with the ancient process of drying grapes on straw mats to concentrate the sugar, is just such a wine. Its flavors lean towards dried stone fruit, making it a nice enhancement for the apples but with a shade of difference.
