Kirsten Bhattacharyya, a Sommelier based in Charleston, SC shared her guide to pairing Giorgio Biscotti with the perfect glass of wine.
Biscotti Notes: Zesty and creamy
Pairs well with: Löss & Lehm Grüner Veltliner
Wine Characteristics: Bright, light, fresh, stone fruit
Why do they work together? The Grüner Veltliner cuts through the sweetness of the white chocolate, while complimenting the zesty fruit flavors of cranberry and orange.
Biscotti Notes: Vanilla and nutty
Pairs well with: M Fondo Marzemino
Wine Characteristics: Bubbly, acidic
Why do they work together? The bubbles from the Fondo Marzemino balance out the double chocolate on the biscotti and bring to life the undertones of vanilla and almond.
Biscotti Notes: Spiced and Toasty
Pairs well with: Glou Glou Las Jaras
Wine Characteristics: Raspberry, blackberry, earthy spice
Why do they work together? The raspberry and blackberry flavors of the wine compliment the complex spices in the biscotti, but can also stand up to the warming toasty notes since the red is chilled.
