Description

Cacciucco is interesting to pair with wine, because White, Red, Rosé, and Sparkling all will work well.

To complement the Fish, and also match Tomatoes and Chili, we will suggest a full bodied, crisp white wine with good fruit and acidity.

Riesling has the right acidity, and a little residual sugar for the spices.

A cooled down Lambrusco will also do the job, because it loves Tomatoes and Spices.

Cacciucco will also pair well with Rosé and Sparkling. Not to mention Sparkling Rosé.

Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
