JC (NC) wrote:2012 ALOVINI GRECO LE RALLE (Greco is the grape variety) I.G.T. Basilicata, Italy. The presenter suggested pairing this with seafood, dishes with tomato sauce such as lasagne, grilled meat, sausage and peppers, Mozzarella cheese. This was a rounded, mild white wine with gentle fruit.
Nice notes. But this kinda thing drives me crazy (the presenter, not you). A mild round white wine that pairs well with seafood, tomato sauce, grilled meat, sausage and peppers, mozz? I think people underestimate white wines with tomato sauces, but to me mild and round are not postives for that match. I just think that most wines that pair well with seafood are not equally adept with grilled meat.
