Truffles and wine pairings

TRUFFLES AND WINE PAIRINGS

The selection

Did you know that pairings between truffles and wine actually don’t exist?

Truffles are considered a condiment, so it is important to choose the wine that best suits the dish on which this precious underground mushroom will be grated on.

Here are some suggestions for a lunch or dinner to suit a king.

EGGS

THE NUTRITIOUS MEAL

Fried eggs

A simple recipe that will enhance the scent of the white truffles from Alba.

Roero Arneis DOCG

An elegant wine with an intense floral scent that recalls chamomile and apricot.

Straw-yellow with green reflections in color, its taste is fresh and pleasantly harmonic.

MUSHROOMS

COUSINS OF THE TRUFFLE

Ovoli (Caesar’s mushroom) salad

Caesar’s mushrooms are delicious mushrooms that are ideal for both cooked and raw dishes. To enjoy them at their best along with the white truffles from Alba, we suggest you to eat them in salads.

Classic Method

Prestigious wines, characterized by a fine and persistent perlage.

Refinement in bottles, on the yeasts of the second fermentation, gives the sparkling wine the typical scent of bread crust. In the mouth it’s fresh and dry.

Porcini mushrooms salad

Porcini mushrooms too are excellent in salads. Cut them into thin slices and season with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil before grating the much-loved truffles on them.

Gavi del comune di Gavi DOCG

A structured wine with a faded straw-yellow color.

Floral notes appear to the sense of smell that evolve, after aging in the bottle, into mineral and citrus shades. The taste is dry with a sapid and slightly bitter finish.

RICE

FOR THE MOST PRETENTIOUS

White risotto

The most simple version of a risotto. A dish with a delicate taste and its heat will enhance the aroma and rich taste of truffles.

Roero DOCG

An important red wine with a ruby color tending to garnet; it offers fine fragrances that recall sweet spices.
The taste is warm, enveloping and balanced. It’s a medium tannic wine, which tends to soften as it matures.

FRESH PASTA

FOR TRADITION LOVERS

Tajarin (fettuccine) with butter

A specialty from the Piedmont cuisine, this pasta is characterized by its subtle layers.

It cooks quickly and after seasoning with butter it goes extremely well with truffles.

Dolcetto

A light and pleasant wine with a ruby red color and violet hues.

The bouquet is delicate and recalls flowers and red fruit. The flavor is dry, harmonious and pleasantly bitter.
