In search of the perfect combinations for the first courses of regional traditions

The marriage created by combining food and wine is one of the most evocative celebrations for our senses. And the real protagonists in the food and dishes of our boot are undoubtedly pasta and rice. In fact, there is nothing that better describes the tradition of Italian cuisine than its first courses, which have conquered tables all over the world. It could be said that it was these iconic dishes that made our cuisine famous globally. When it comes to combining the right wine with a dish, the sommelier typically proposes a combination by concordance or by contrast, but when you really want to discover a territory and immerse yourself in its culture, there is no better combination than what tradition suggests. , even with local wines. In Italy, a lifetime would not be enough to get to know its extraordinary food and wine richness in depth. In fact, every region, every city and every Italian village hides in its tradition various typical ingredients and recipes that become a symbol of its own identity. Similarly, as happens in the kitchen, even in the world of wine, each region or wine area has its native vines, its grape production and cultivation methods handed down for generations. Until a few decades ago, the availability of food was much more limited than today. Therefore, mainly local products were used in the kitchen, easily available in small shops or in town markets. This context led our ancestors to combine wines with local recipes according to tradition, following the choice of the best combination, then handed down to the present day. These combinations are, without a doubt, the best way to get to know and immerse yourself in a culture.
