As Sauce is one of our favorite Italian NYC go-to’s, we got a chance to get the inside scoop on truffles & wine from Adam Elzer, Owner of REC Hospitality Group.
PAIRING TRUFFLES & WINE
“I would only recommend pairing wines of Piemonte with truffles (nebbiolo, barolo, barbaresco, barbara) – these will always pair up to the rich flavor of the truffle and help get your palate ready for the next bite!”
PICKING BAROLO FOR THE TRUFFLE DINNER
“Nebbiolo (the grape that is used for Barolo and Barbaresco) is the only other thing this land in Piemonte produces – it pairs perfectly with the truffles – we focus on region and staying local – whatever grows together usually goes together – in this case that it is a great pairing.”
PAIRING WHITE VS. BLACK TRUFFLES
“Though my knowledge of white truffles surpasses that of black truffles, pairing still follows similar rules: Balance between strong + delicate flavors, pay attention to the acidity, have a clear ’star’ in the meal + don’t overpower it, and promote the best characteristics in the wine through the dish’s flavors. White truffles go very well with butter and salt – so you don’t want to pair them with any dish that has to robust of a flavor as it will take away from the truffle flavor… When pairing wines we stay within the Piemonte region.”
