General Tso Chicken is very similar to Sesame Chicken, just a bit sweeter. A slightly chilled glass of Lambrusco is the perfect wine match.
Lambrusco is a sparkling red wine from Emilia Romagna that can have enough residual sugar to match the sweetness, and enough acidity to cut the fatty oil used to fry the chicken.
Gamay, with its combination of light body, high acidity and fruit explosion works well too.
A not too dry Rosé matches both the sweetness of the dish and the color of the sauce.
Bubbles are always a great choice, especially if the chicken is crispy fried.
