Wines for the Easter menu
Among quiches, pastiera and chocolate eggs, your Easter menu deserves a selection of ad hoc wines. If tradition demands starters of cured meat, cheese and quiches, then one of the best bottles to pair them with is for sure the Etrusco di Tili, an Umbrian white wine, very elegant and balanced, with a fruity aftertaste.
From quiches to Colomba: the wines for your Easter menu.
Following, the irresistible lasagna with ragù stands out among the main courses of the Easter menu and, due to its intense taste, it needs to be accompanied by an equally deep and strong wine, preferably with a persisting taste. Consequently, the choice can only be the Sagrantino di Montefalco 25 anni Caprai, a red collection wine perfect to taste on every day of the year.
Baked lamb is the second dish on the tables of many Italian on Easter day. The ideal wine for it is a 100% Montepulciano d’Abruzzo: the Kurni Oasi degli Angeli, characterised by a taste which is as balanced as long and defined, particularly indicated for meat dishes.
Just like for the Christmas menu, Easter’s most awaited moment is the dessert! In this case, the sweet par excellence is rigorously the Colomba, just like “her majesty” the Neapolitan pastiera. For a triumph of sweetness, we suggest a Muffato della Sala Castello della Sala Antinori, deeply aromatic, with honeyed and floral scents.
The grand finale is reserved for chocolate eggs. For those who prefer dark chocolate, the unbeatable match is with the Caol Ila 10 Y Single Malt Scotch, fresh and strong, with delicate citrus notes.
