The Italian wine perfect for this dish is a full-flavoured white wine with a medium freshness, to not over-accentuate the acidic notes of the tomato. Southern whites are perfect, fragrant and with a fruity mouthfeel and a fresh balance on the finish. Alternatively, try a Sangiovese, especially with meat dishes such as salami, prosciutto and sausage. For those who don't want to give up the bubbles, the combination with a traditional method Franciacorta always works.
