5 wines to pair with pizzoccheri, according to Tannico

What to drink in combination with the intense and comforting taste of pizzoccheri? Tannico has selected 5 perfect wines for us

When the cold season comes a nice plate of pizzoccheri that's just what it takes: but what is the wine best to combine with this delicious traditional dish?

Pizzoccheri are of the noodles fresh prepared with buckwheat seasoned strictly with cabbage, potatoes and cheese dairy. What is already a comfort food in itself can only be accompanied by a good glass, the right one, capable of harmonizing and enhancing the flavors present in the dish. One of the best ways to achieve this goal is certainly to remain in the reference area: pizzoccheri, typical of Valtellina, perfectly match with Valtellina wines, coming from Nebbiolo, which in the area are called Chiavennasche.

Still and full-bodied reds, they are ideal to accompany this dish, but how to choose the most suitable bottle? Marco Magnocavallo, CEO and co-founder of Tannic he recommended 5 wines to pair with the pizzoccheri that are right for us!
