We caught up with Pizzeria Mozza’s Bar Manager, Aiden Page, who shares his recommendations for the perfect pairing with Pizzeria Mozza’s new season dishes.
Our Bastianich Friuli Colli Orientali DOC Sauvignon Vini Orsone has flavours of bright citrus fruit and a crisp, elegant finish. Perfect as an aperitivo or with antipasti like our Butternut Squash Bruschetta with brown butter, bitter greens, and pancetta.
You can’t go wrong with a dry, crisp Italian white wine such as Bibi Graetz Toscana Casamatta Bianco when paired with the Mozza Caprese, for a quintessential taste of Italy.
The sweet flavour of butternut squash in our Butternut Squash Pizza with mascarpone, pancetta, sage and pumpkin seeds is paired perfectly with rich, buttery Italian whites like Alois Lageder Chardonnay.
The combination of intense dark fruit flavours, such as purple plums and black cherry with notes of leather and black pepper in Nicolis Amarone della Valpolicella Classico, pair best with slightly spiced or smoky meats like Pizzeria Mozza’s nduja pizza with friggitelli peppers, tomato and smoked scamorza.
The sweetness of Pumpkin Gelato Pie will overwhelm a lot of lighter dessert wines so pair with our Gianduia Old Fashioned made with Roasted Hazelnut Takamaka Spiced Rum, coco nib syrup and angostura bitters. The spice of the rum and earthiness of the hazelnut will balance out the sweetness from the dessert perfectly.
