We often highlight infographics on food and wine pairing but it’s rare to see one that focuses directly on one wine.
This infographic from Dievole looks at the Tuscan Sangiovese wine and some of the great Tuscan dishes it pairs with.
It’s a dry red wine with a strong, fruity and earthy aroma and the dishes have each been suggested to match well with these qualities.
Strong Tuscan pecorino cheese, game meats, steak and gnocchi with sage and butter sauce are just a few of the dishes listed.
