Pork chops Milanese upscales the already fantastic Pork Milanese by using a thick-cut bone-in pork chop instead of a pork cutlet. Herb-seasoned bread crumbs with Parmigiano Reggiano cheese create a golden, crisp exterior that helps keep the interior tender and moist. The subtle, almost sweet flavor of pork complements the herbs and cheese of the breading for a dish that tastes like it should be harder to make than it is.
Pork is a versatile meat that allows for several wine-pairing options. We have gone with one of our favorite wines, the 2016 Kivelstadt Old Wyve’s Tale Carignane, to complement the herbs of the crispy breading while providing a fruit and spice contrast to the tender pork. The Old Wyve’s Tale is the product of old vine fruits from two vineyards that undergo a partial whole cluster natural fermentation. Old vines mean low yields and concentrated flavors, which mean tart red cranberry and raspberry flavors with dried herbs which are a tremendous match with our Pork Milanese
