Perfect Wine Pairings From Nonna Rosa Italian Restaurant

December 2020, Okatie, SC – Award-winning Nonna Rosa Italian Restaurant in Bluffton SC offers a quick guide for the perfect wine and dish pairings this holiday.

Wine is a staple for every Italian meal, the Okatie-based Italian restaurant says, adding that it is essential in bringing the meal’s flavor. “Wine and Italian food go hand in hand. The wine you choose will improve the flavor of your meal,” they stressed. Nonna Rosa Italian Restaurant offers detailed pairing tips for every preference.

First is red wine and meat. Red wines are also excellent for light cheeses that are fresh and not overly flavored. Italian Chiantis are perfect for bold well-seasoned sauces, tomato-based sauces, cheese dishes, and light salads. Another pair for tomato-based sauces is cabernet sauvignon, which has a rich black currant flavor. For light Italian dishes, it is perfectly paired with light red wines like pinot noir.

White wines, on the other hand, are for seafood and white meat. Chardonnay, a semi-sour, bold, and light white wine, is best paired with any creamy Italian dish and lighter meat, such as seafood or chicken. Pinot Gris is excellent for creamy dishes of crab, oyster, and lobster with its fruity flavor. It is also great with light buttery sauce and cheeses. For spicy and acidic dishes, Nonna Rosa Italian Restaurant recommends Primitivo and Amarone.
