Poultry

italian wine pairings

Cooking poultry offers Italians great amounts of versatility in dishes. Beyond chicken, Tuscany is home to game birds like pheasant and pigeons which provide more flavor than chicken. Stuffed, grilled, roasted or made into pate, poultry can match with a variety of wines.

A Chianti is always a safe choice for Tuscan poultry dishes, such Frescobaldi’s Nipozzano Riserva or Nipozzano Montesodi.
