This Piedmontese delicacy has ingredients with contrasting flavors: veal, tuna, capers, mayonnaise and lemon.

The dominant flavor is the tuna sauce, so the best match is a white wine.

We suggest bubbles if Vitello Tonnato is served as an Apetizer. Bubbles work perfectly with tasty capers and tuna mayo.

If Vitello Tonnato is served as a main course, a Piedmontese white is the perfect match.

We don't recommend red wines because of the tuna and lemon mayonnaise: red wine could result unpleasant and give a fishy aftertaste.

Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
