Porchetta is a traditional Italian food made of slow-roast pork stuffed with garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper.
Regional variations use local wild herbs such wild fennel, juniper and myrtle.
Porchetta is caramelized pork and the wine needs to match the sweetnesss.
The best pair is a low tannin wine with some acidity.
White and red wines from Central Italy are a classic since Porchetta originated there.
Any Sangiovese based wine will go fine with Porchetta, and Pork and Pinot Nero is a safe combination.
