There are very good reasons why Locorotondo (a dry white wine from Puglia) is a popular choice for broccoli and anchovy pasta. With a dish so rich in flavor and texture, you’ll want a medium-bodied wine with a soft mouthfeel and a high acidity that has the ability to cut through the saltiness in your pasta.
Because of its refreshing character, the Mezzavia IGP Toscana from Gabriele Mazzeschi winery is a good alternative to Locorotondo. This white wine has a fresh yet harmonious palate that makes it the ideal companion for broccoli and anchovy pasta.
A Tuscan wine for broccoli and anchovy pasta
Mezzavia is a polished, modern Tuscan wine with a crisp structure and fragrant notes of green apple and walnut. It has a pale yellow-gold hue with glints of green and orange.
Thanks to its lively acidity and vibrant aromas, Mezzavia is able to simultaneously embrace and highlight the earthy flavor of broccoli and the saline bite of anchovies. Versatile and fun-to-drink, this white wine is a refreshing palate cleanser. It pairs beautifully with a wide variety of foods.
Mezzavia is a blend of Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes from Gabriele Mazzeschi vineyards in Castiglion Fiorentino, a small town close to Cortona and Arezzo. These vines have been tended organically since 1996.
