Bardolino food pairing

Bardolino food pairing

Bardolino is a red, light fruity wine that fits with many dishes even those which normally would be served with white wine. In particular subtly flavored dishes are good candidates for this wine. Here are some suggestions for meals:

Meat: White and soft meat such as: pork, veal, minced meat, salami and prosciutto crudo (e.g. San Daniele or Parma ham).

Fish: Bardolino fits well with almost any fish. Especially fish with a stronger flavor work well such as tuna steak, swordfish, salmon and anchovies.

Poultry: Chicken, turkey and duck with a light not too spicy sauce.

Pasta and Pizza: All pasta varieties such as spaghetti, penne and fettucine combined with a meat or cheese sauce combine well, then again, almost all pasta dishes can be combined with a Bardolino as long as the sauce is not too strong. Bardolino also fits well with pizza with tomato, cheese, meat and/or seafood.

Cheeses: Young light and creamy cheeses such as soft goat cheese, Asiago, Brie, Port Salut, Feta, Mozzarella, Ricotta and lightly smoked cheeses such as Provalone.

Bardolino is best served in long slightly round glasses and the best serving temperature is between 14°C and 17°C (57 ~ 63 degrees Fahrenheit).
