There’s a saying often repeated among American food and wine professionals (the first time our American blogger heard it, it was uttered by legendary restaurateur Danny Meyer): If it grows with it, it goes with it.
We just loved this post by veteran wine blogger and writer Vicki Denig on “The wines to drink with 7 iconic Italian dishes.”
White truffles from Piedmont? Nebbiolo (check!)
Bistecca fiorentina? Chianti (is there any other?)
Trenette with Pesto? Vermentino (so good)
And, of course, ragù alla bolognese? None other than Lambrusco!
When you travel to Emilia, you’ll find that the Emilians drink nothing but Lambrusco. It’s the canonical pairing for their style of cooking and their famous food products (Prosciutto di Parma, Culatello, salumi, Parmigiano Reggiano, etc.).
Italy’s intrinsic regionalism is part of what makes the mosaic of its gastronomy so fascinating and compelling.
We couldn’t have been more thrilled that Vicki recommended our wines in her post.
Thank you, Vicki!
