Recommended Wine: 2002 Terruzi & Puthod Terre di Tufi Origin: San Gimignano, Tuscany Grape: Vernaccia Wine notes: For this dish I picked a white wine from a little town in Tuscany. This wine is made from vernaccia grapes and is very luxurious in texture. There is a wonderful perfume to this wine, similar to wild flowers and freshly cut grass. The crudite gives it an extra mineral edge which makes this wine a perfect match with my dish. I like to serve this chilled but not too cold because the colder the wine, the more difficult it is to taste it. Wine Pouring Notes: Do not fill above the curve of the bowl, never more than 1/2 full, that way you can get a true sense of the wine's aroma and a better sense of its bouquet. To get the full experience of the wine, place your nose into the glass and take in the wine's beautiful aroma.
