Earthy flavoured dishes made with mushrooms and truffles
Pair with earthy reds, like aged red. You want “similar flavours that can be found in both the food and wine”, says Eric Rao, a Certified Specialist of Wine (CSW) and French Wine Scholar (FWS) from Enoteca Co. Alternatively, winemaker Juanjo Pinol of Spain’s Celler Pinol suggests “a full-flavoured, oak-fermented white like the Celler Pinol L’Avi Arrufi White 2012 for a beautiful complement”.
