Prosciutto di Parma -Topped Pizza + Sangiovese
Some say a pizza isn’t complete without a bit of Italian pork – and there’s no better pork for pizza than Prosciutto di Parma. I like it along with a bit of fresh, peppery rucola to balance out the intensity of the fatty meat and cheese. You’ll need a wine big enough to stand up to the complexly layered pizza, but not so intense that it tramples over its more nuanced flavors. The obvious go-to pairing is found in wines made from the workhorse grape of Tuscany: Sangiovese, with its big, ripe, cherry fruit flavors, firm tannins, and high acidity.
