What you will need:
This is just a really nice, dry Italian white wine. It's described by the experts as a Garganega blend made with the same grape as Soave, intense and complex, with exotic aromas of lavender, toast, peach and pineapple.
It's been our favourite white at Cookery for years and it's a Vintages Essential so it's always available at the LCBO.
This is a Chianti style red wine from Sardinia that offers amazing quality for a surprisingly lower price - making it a key Cookery Italian cooking class pick for years. It's also a Vintages Essential at the LCBO.
Cannonau is the Sardinian name for the Mediterranean grape, Grenache. This traditional version has complex flavours of plum, wild berries, leather and spice. It's been oak aged for two years in large Slavonian casks with several additional months in the bottle. It's medium-bodied for food-friendly matchings.
