Description

Crocchette is street food from Southern Italy.

They are made with mashed potatos, egg, cheese and parsley, covered with bread crumbs and fried.

My favorite match for Crocchette is chilled Metodo classico: the fresh acidity pairs so well with fried food.

Crocchette and Prosecco is a gastronomic match made in heaven, and the carbonation helps my digestion.

The lees of Metodo Classico and the Bread Crumbs share the same tasting notes.

For Crocchette with Meat, a fruity Italian red wine is always a good choice.

Food and Wine Pairing

Food and wine pairing is highly dependent on both the taste components in the food and the taste components in the wine.


Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
