What Goes With Sangiovese?
A lot of your favorite foods! Enjoy Noceto Sangiovese with a variety of tomato-based dishes such as pizza, pasta, cioppino, gumbo, or chicken cacciatore.
The Noceto Sangiovese pairs well not only with pasta and pizza, but with a wide range of light meats from pork to lamb, and "meatier" fish, such as salmon. The Riserva Sangiovese stands up to fuller flavored dishes, and even beef.
