Wine Pairing
Pizza Piccante


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

Pairing Suggestions

Zinfandel (USA)
Primitivo Passitivo (Italy)
Lambrusco (Italy)
Chianti (Italy)
Valpolicella (Italy)
Dolcetto (Italy)


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

A favorite match for a Pizza is a chilled Lambrusco, but for a spicy pizza you should try a Zinfandel or a Primitivo Passitivo.

The Sweetnes pairs so well with the Chili, the Cheese and the Tomatoes.

Othewise, for a Spicy Pizza, a fruity (Italian) red wine is always a good choice.
