Wine Pairings for Dishes with Oregano
as recommended by Karen Bonarrigo & Merrill Bonarrigo
5 tips to Wine Pairings for Osso Buco and Oregano:
- Osso Buco is a rich braised veal from northern Italy. It is easy to make but needs to have time to cook. Allow the time because done correctly it falls off the bone. The richness of the dish creates a great pairing with bold red wines.
- Oregano is a bold sultry herb that helps to define Italian cuisine flavors. Adding oregano to any dish adds flavor weight that creates a bridge to the heavy flavor weight wines.
- Osso Buco is a great example of creating flavor affinity by adding the same wine in the dish that you serve with the dish.
- Wines that are great with the Osso Buco prepared with bold reds that have medium tannins include Cabernet Fr
anc, Primitivo, Merlot, and GSM.
