carbonara pairing, with wild boar bacon

cleopatra999 | Nov 25, 2008 08:26 AM

I have looked through the carbonara wine pairings. I am wondering if the wild boar bacon will change the pairing suggestions. I am following a recipe that calls for 1/2 cup of dry white wine, I would ideally like to open only one bottle. If I cannot combine, then I will go with the recipe without the white wine in it, and would therefore be open to almost any suggestions. I am not interested in the Rose Champagne (sorry MariaLorraine), it is my hubby's bday dinner and he is not a sparkling fan.

thanks for the help.

ps. other factors, combo of parm reg & piave vecchio (it is what I have left over), and NO cream.
