Description

Calf liver with onions and fried potatoes is an American classic dinner and as "Fegato alla Veneziana" (Venetian liver and onions) a delicacy from the Venetian Cuisine.

Liver and onions are sweet, so we need a wine with matching sweetness.

To complement the iron flavor of liver go for a Syrah or its blends from Côtes du Rhône, a Merlot or a Rioja, they have just the right bite.

"Fegato alla Veneziana" calls for a local wine: Valpolicella Ripasso.

If there is Madeira or fortified wine in the gravy, then you need more sugar in the wine. Try an off-dry Alsatian white wine.

Go Local

Make it a habit to eat and drink local. Expand your skills to understand the passion that wine communicates. Explore the range of possibilities a grape can express through culture, terroir, and climate.
