Wine pairing

The perfect wine pairing for this dish is a Traminer Aromatico from Trentino Alto Adige. Try Bottega Vinai Gewurztraminer 2021.

This wine has a bright, golden yellow color, with brilliant reflections. On the nose it is intense, rich, with very intense olfactory notes of tea rose and with subtle olfactory nuances of spices, such as thyme and juniper. In the mouth the wine is elegant and structured, very balanced, almost creamy. Very rich the aftertaste that expresses itself with long persistence, which evokes aromas of rose, apricot and dried pineapple.
