What wine goes with saffron risotto?
Then, what wine goes best with risotto?
Chardonnay, especially white burgundy, is also a good pairing for a chicken or a mushroom risotto which tend to be richer and more savoury but you could also drink a pinot noir or a Barolo, even though this is not traditional in the region. (They generally save it for the meat course and drink a Barbera.).
Additionally, what wine goes with pumpkin risotto? When preparing a creamy pumpkin dish, such as a pumpkin soup or pumpkin risotto, think “dry” or “creamy” on the palate when it comes to wine. Here's the place for your Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, a dry Prosecco or an Albariño.
Secondly, what wine goes with saffron?
A dry rosé from Rioja or Navarra would have worked too . White wine is obviously also a possiblitity with both these dishes. Again I'd be inclined to reach for something dry and unoaked or very subtly oaked - a white Cotes du Rhone, maybe or a new wave Languedoc blend of Roussanne, Marsanne and Viognier.
What kind of wine goes with seafood risotto?
The perfect way to pair a seafood risotto is with a young white wine, fresh and sapid, of medium structure, like a Sauvignon Blanc. This kind of risotto includes ingredients such as crab, vongole or shrimps. Another classic risotto is the one with mushrooms.
