Wine Pairing
Pizza Piccante


Pizza Piccante (Spicy Pizza) is normally served with Salame Piccante (Spicy Salami).

Pairing Suggestions

Lambrusco (Italy)
Chianti (Italy)
Valpolicella (Italy)
Dolcetto (Italy)
Beaujolais (France)
Pinot Noir (World)
Merlot (World)


To complement the fat and the pepper in Salame Piccante, tomato, cheese, and other strong spices, you need a medium to full-bodied wine with ripe berry flavors and well-balanced tannins.

My favorite match for Pizza Piccante a chilled Lambrusco. The fresh acidity pairs so well with the Spices, the Cheese and the Tomatoes.

For a Spicy Pizza, 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.
