Panzerotti is pan-fried Bread, typical from Southern Italy. A lighter version is oven baked.

The name Panzerotti (turnovers) means "bellies".

The original stuffing is Mozzarella, Tomato Sauce and Oregano, but you can use virtually anything you like.

My favorite match for Panzerotti is chilled Metodo Classico. The fresh acidity pairs so well with Cheese and Tomato Sauce.

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

Sparkling wines will match the acidic Tomato Sauce and cut through the fat of Mozzarella Cheese.

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

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

Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
