Tannic wines tend to leave the mouth dry even after a single sip, and this will not allow you to fully appreciate the flavor of mozzarella cheese. Which wine to choose? Trust the specialties of your region! If you are in Campania, with the buffalo mozzarella from Battipaglia or with the saltier one from Mondragone and Caserta, you can serve a goodPiedirosso. If you live in Piedmont you can enhance the flavor ofDolcetto ovadese classic or Superior, the wording "superior" indicates a Dolcetto Ovadese which has a minimum alcohol content of 12.5 and has been aged for one year. The dry, soft and aromatic taste of Ovada Dolcetto, pleasantly almondy, goes perfectly with a beautiful buffalo mozzarella from Campania!
Green light also to other wines such as Barbera Monferrina and Carasuolo d'Abruzzo.
White wine and mozzarella
What wine to combine with mozzarella? Red and rosé yes, but it also depends on the side dish. When mozzarella is served single, the choice of red or rosé wine is a winner but if there are side dishes such as asparagus, courgettes, spinach, roasted pumpkin, artichoke hearts, roasted mushrooms and other grilled vegetables, we can also call into question theWhite wine.
White wine with mozzarella alone is not a winning combination: it is too bitter while mozzarella has a tastefat, intense and very elastic ...however, when particularly sweet vegetables are added, white wine can create a nice contrast to its more bitter temperament. Also in these cases you can choose typical wines of your region: if you live in the south, a good Greco di Tufo can accompany skewers of vegetables with mozzarella, if you live in the north you can give voice to the vivid and long Riesling of South Tyrol.
