Accompanying Foods
This lively, light requires drinking in the company of friends. One sip will satisfy any palate like non other drink. It is favourable with molluscs, crustaceans and sweet tender fish, either raw or marinated and delicately cooked. A harmonious relationship between some fish menus and the vivacity of the Bianchello exists. The tones between pale yellow and green, the delicate body with a smooth impact verging on dry, and the definite clean fresh influences, exalt the taste and salty bouquet of live fish. It is optimal when served with fish that have been slightly brushed with local extra-virgin olive oil and cooked over embers. It also goes well with simple dishes of sweet white meats, soups, rice and pasta dishes lightly dressed.
