Wine Pairing

Advice of Wine to combine

Suggest from Sommelier

This risotto is marked by the earthy, meaty flavors of the mushrooms. We're looking for aromatic and flavor similarities, and we find them in a year-old Pinot Noir , which evokes the flavor of damp earth, red stone fruit, and a quite velvety texture.
