One of the world’s most famous steaks pairs best with Cabernet Sauvignon
Savvy match: Bistecca alla fiorentina is one of the world’s most famous steaks. This dish hails from Tuscany, and like all great Italian dishes’ simplicity is the key. Traditionally, Chianti or Brunello would be the go-to, and that’s the clue, you need those tannins to cut through the fat and protein of the steak. Cabernet Sauvignon has both rich flavors and high tannin that are also complemented by grilled meats. If you’ve got a big red with good tannins, the Bistecca alla Fiorentina is your next fave dish. I always say, ‘the better wine, the simpler the dish should be.’ Use the best quality beef you can get your hands on, and let this dish bring out the best in your favorite red wine.
