This week, our Atlanta wine shop takes us to Italy for a featured seasonal wine pairing--
Eggplant Provencal with Tomatoes, Peppers & Saffron Rice
Chianti - Stay true to the saying “acid loves acid” when pairing wine with this dish. Tomatoes are high in acid and so is Chianti. Sauteed eggplant, aka melanzana in Italian, also pairs well with Chianti. Suggestion: Melini, Chianti DOCG, Tuscany, Italy
