Pizza Margherita and Chardonnay: classic elegance

The Margherita pizza, with its base of fresh tomatoes, stringy mozzarella and basil, is a timeless classic. To accentuate the fresh and slightly acidic flavours of the Margherita, we have opted for Chardonnay: a delicate, elegant and fruity wine. This wine pairing will create a balanced and refined taste experience and we are sure it will convince you at first taste.

Four-cheese pizza and Chianti: the strength of robust flavours

The richness of the four-cheese pizza requires a robust and structured wine. A Chianti, with its balanced tannins and fruity notes, pairs beautifully with the creaminess of the cheeses. Its acidity cuts through the texture, offering a full-bodied and satisfying combination.

Pizza pepperoni and Syrah: a meeting of boldness and intensity

A Syrah or Shiraz is often an ideal choice for those who enjoy spicy challenges. A red wine known for its robustness, richness of black fruit and spices, it is well suited to the bold and spicy flavour of salami. The tannic structure and aromatic bouquet of the Syrah complement the complexity of the pizza, creating an intense combination that delights the palate with every bite.

Pizza with seafood and Rosé wines: marine versatility

Choosing a rosé wine with a seafood pizza may be the solution you are looking for. This type of wine offers freshness and versatility that goes well with light, seafood flavours. Simple or enriched with prawns and clams, such a pizza certainly goes well with the fruity notes of sparkling or still rosé wine, creating a light and delicious combination.

Four Seasons Pizza and Sauvignon Blanc: Summer Harmony

A fresh and lively Sauvignon Blanc can be the perfect ally for this combination of varied ingredients. Its notes of tropical fruit and herbaceous accents intertwine surprisingly well with the freshness of the artichokes, the saltiness of the olives, and the complexity of the ham. This selection of white wine adds a dimension of freshness and vitality to Quattro Stagioni pizza, creating a summery harmony of flavours that dance on the palate with elegance.
