A juicy Bistecca alla Fiorentina requires a bold red wine that can stand up to the meat.

A red wine with both tannins and a good backbone of acidity.

A Perfectly blended Bordeaux is an enjoyable wine. It pairs especially well with Beef.

A round and soft Cabernet Sauvignon is also a good match for this type of meat.

T-Bone, Bistecca Fiorentina, and Porterhouse are all beef cuts from the Short Loin, and formed like a T-shaped bone with meat on each side.

The large side is a steak, and the small side is a filet.

A Porterhouse Steak and a Bistecca Fiorentina has more Filet than a traditional T-Bone.
