Cold winters also lend themselves well to wine, especially a red, medium-bodied glass of wine perfect for a succulent minestrone. It offers a great compliment to the structure of the wine without overpowering the delicate flavors of the vegetables.
The best wine for a minestrone is most certainly a Chianti Classico or a Sangiovese di Romagna thanks to their acidity and pleasant freshness that balance rounded and discreet tannins. Not a fan of red wines? We’ve got you covered. Opt for a Tuscan Chardonnay or a Venetian Soave – all wines of great freshness, great body and perfect sapidity, ideal for balancing the sweetness of any winter veggie.
