I'm starting to get more into pairing wine, making sure that the wine really does enhance the flavours of the food & vice versa. But, when I pick out wines I seem to get very hit & miss results with my own 'instincts' on pairing. So could you wonderful people help with a couple dishes that I often whip up at home? :)
My girlfriend's signature dish, which I love, is a Gorgonzola & Porcini Mushroom Risotto. What would be the perfect wine? I tried this with a Cab Sauv & that seemed to work quite nicely, but it was a little overpowering... Maybe a Sangiovese?
Also, what would work well with a really simple grazing platter? (prosciutto, olivers, tzatziki, artichoke dip, maybe a little chorizo or arancini)
