There is nothing to prevent anyone from indulging in experimenting with wine and food: from classic recipes that you know well to perhaps more unusual recipes that do not belong to the culinary traditions of your country.

Below we suggest 3 delicious Russian recipes that can go very well with our wines: Chardonnay di Montemaggio IGT, Chianti Classico Riserva, and Torre di Montemaggio IGT.

Chardonnay di Montemaggio IGT is a white wine, morbid and balanced, with a straw-like yellow colour with reflections of gold. Its fresh flavour with notes of tropical fruits, flowers, straw, honey and spices is very pleasant for the palate.

You can pair with “Salad Olivier”, a typical Russian dish. It consists of potatoes, peas, carrots, boiled eggs, dill pickles, mayonnaise and you can add either shrimps or quails. All vegetables are boiled or steamed and then cut into cubes (see the recipe).

Chianti Classico Riserva is a red wine produced from the best Sangiovese grapes that come especially from the oldest vineyards. It has an intense ruby colour, a spicy perfume with a hint of wood and a full, velvety and austere flavour.

You can pair with Manti, a Kazakistan recipe, very popular in Central Asia. Manti are made with pasta for dumplings and filled with minced meat, seasoned with spices and onions. They are steamed in Asian bamboo steaming basket, and served with sour cream (see the recipe).

Torre di Montemaggio IGT is a red wine made from pure Merlot. This wine has an intense ruby colour, elegant taste, delicate bouquet, full of berry tones. Its full flavour and balanced acidity make it ideal with red meat.

You can pair with Shashliki, a specialty of the Slavic countries that can be made with beef, lamb, pork, chicken and even vegetables. The meat is marinated for several hours with lemon, olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic, dill and bay leaves (see the recipe).
