Wines to pair with cheeses 

Cheese and wine are an excellent pairing, as long as you know how to combine them to enjoy the flavour of both. For an aperitif with friends, an important occasionor a special event, it makes a perfect, exquisite pairing. Bear in mind that a very complex cheese should not be paired with an equally complex wine because the intense range of aromas and flavours in the cheese will conflict with the wide variety of similar attributes in a very elaborate wine. 

Are red wine and cheeses a good pairing? 

It is widely known that a red wine with a piece of cheese can bring a new lease of life, i.e. a good red wine is the ideal pairing for a cheese platter. As with the majority of pairings, the key elements to achieve harmony between the cheese and wine are the alcohol content, acidity, and effervescence. Italian cheeses are not only famous for their quality but also their strong regional character. That is why they offer all kinds of opportunities for pairing with red wines from all regions in Italy. If we classify cheeses based on their ageing, we find three types: fresh cheeses, semi-mature cheeses and mature cheeses, and two of these categories are an excellent accompaniment for red wines. 

The best red wine to pair with cheeses

Pairing cheeses, jams and wine is a classic tradition in Italian food and wine. To be specific, one of the best pairings for red wines is well-aged cheeses, like Parmigiano Reggiano. In this case, we recommend a firmly structured red wine, especially one that is local, like the red wines from  Emilia-Romagna. However, if you are thinking about tasting a very mature cheese, a Brunello di Montalcinofrom Tuscany or a Barbera d’Astifrom Piedmont would be ideal options to pair with the cheeses. 

Other types of pairings for red wines

If you are preparing a dinner or aperitif with red wine, you can use your imagination to the full. There are no limits as there is an endless variety of young red wines that can be easily paired with a platter of cheeses and cured meats, vegetables and white meats, while structured red wines like a Cabernet Sauvignon or Chianti Classico work well with dishes with more complex flavours like red meats. For an entertaining special dinner with lots of guests, a unique idea is to prepare different types of pasta or meat to pair with different red wines with a cheese-based starter.
