Wine and white truffles
Posted 13 September 2004 - 01:08 PM
Any thoughts on the varieties of Piedmonte wines that go well with white truffles? Or that conflict with truffles?
Thanks for sharing your expertise with us!

I think that the best match(if you have the possibility to" catch" a good white truffle from Alba)is white truffle on an egg,simply, or on a risotto or hand-made pasta(tajarin, for example).
The truffle taste is very strong, the parfume is powerful, you need a complex wine, tannic but balanced; I am sure that a 4-5 years old Barbaresco or Barolo will be wonderful on it.
Let me know!( or invite me when you will do it....)
