Creamy tuna flavoured sauce, tender meat, piquant capers – this combination of ingredients can be matched wonderfully with powerful white wines with a touch of spice. Powerful Grüner Veltliner complements vitello tonnato perfectly: peppery spiciness for the capers and ripe fruit for the creaminess of the sauce. An alternative option would be a ripe Riesling with relatively subtle fruit to counter the spiciness of the capers.
Pairs nicely with
- Powerful Grüner Veltliner is a perfect choice
- Powerful Riesling without botrytis notes
- Powerful Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Rotgipfler or Zierfandler
- Light Zweigelt, not fruit dominated
