Pairing for this variety
This wine likes meat: beef, lamb, pork and game. It’s also a good choice for ingredients that could be troublesome for other wines: tomatoes, eggplants, bell peppers, onions and garlic. Vegetable soups and mushrooms are also good alternatives and, if opting for cheeses, go for the yellow, medium-bodied type.
