How many times have you found in the supermarket to observe dozens and dozens of bottles of wine without knowing which one to choose? Surely many, to be able to match the wine to the food that you eat is not always as simple as you believed and the combination of the famous white wine with white meats and fish and red wine with red meat is too simplistic.

The basic rule is to enjoy your favorite wine with your favorite food but the key is to make a choice based on the “weight” and texture of what you are about to eat.

In the case of heavy meals is a good choice of wines more structured, while for the sauces more delicate, and thin: going in order, we should mention some of the dishes such as meats with red sauces, robust, and turkey with sauces, robust, pasta carbonare, foods with a lot of butter or gravy, or sauces lighter, grilled chicken, seafood, shrimp, and sughetti light.

In these cases, going to order, you can combine wines such as Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Piedmont, sardinian red, such as the Carignano, tuscan wines like Chianti, Merlot, Pinot Noir, or white wines such as Vermentino and Trebbiano. In the case of hot or spicy foods and best wines such as Pinot gris, Sauvignon Blanc and Sancerre.

Before going to the supermarket and find yourself unprepared, it is advisable to consult the online store of wines, where you can find reviews, ratings, and possible combinations and choose the ones most suitable to the occasion.

Another secret to choosing a good wine is to keep track of the ones that impressed us, perhaps over dinner in a restaurant or the home of friends, or, asking for a copy of the wines in the event you find yourself in a tasting of a wine cellar.

In the case you go directly to a wine bar you can ask the sales person who usually is a trained person specialized in wine, just describe the type of wine that you want, and surely you will get good advice, and possible recommendations to make a good choice.

Finally, another secret to choosing a good wine is to read the evaluations, many shops often publish , or choose to advertise a quality instead of another, of course it is always a parry, which remains the most subjective, but a wine with a high rating definitely deserves attention, don’t you think?
