What to give to the Italian paste? Of course, bottle of “Chianti“! - The representation which settled however not absolutely true. Each region of this country always considered as a point of honor to offer wines of a local origin to the dishes.
the simplest recipes of dishes from paste include only several ingredients. Besides actually paste it can be, for example, only olive oil, garlic and a handful of pine nuts. Light, fragrant white wines for which are especially well-known North - east regions of the country best of all approach such dishes. Pay attention to a “company“ Italian grade of a pin gridzhio - with the refreshing citrus bouquet and pleasant spicy notes. Pin grapes wines gridzhio well accompany pastes with green vegetables or herbs - from basic spaghetti with parsley and walnuts to refined penne with artichokes.
White wines, certainly, - the best addition to cold macaroni salads. Filled with olive oil, with zucchini, broccoli or green peas, salads are only benefited from presence of the wines to “Soava“, “Pino Gridzhio“, “Pino Byanko“, “Sauvignon Blan“ made on North - the East of Italy.
These drinks - excellent maintenance and for dishes with seafood - both cold, and hot. And in Lombardy, the central part of Northern Italy, to paste with seafood, most likely, will offer you the dry Franchakorta sparkling wine made by a traditional sparkling method. An interesting example of such combination - a pantachcha (the thin cylindrical paste reminding a penne) with combs, shrimps and zucchini which is served from “Franchakort extra brut“.
If to move to the west - to Piedmont, home classical thin wide egg noodles, then here in a basis it is wine - gastronomic combinations - white “GAVI“ with notes of citruses and minerals. Especially well it approaches the tagliatelle watered with the kindled butter and the seasoned sage. Add several shavings of fresh white truffles why tagliatelle develop unique aroma and a taste of mushrooms to a dish in the fall. In this case the well-known red wine of Piedmont of “Barolo“ possessing powerful male character becomes more pertinent wine partner.
