Orzo Salad with a Trebbiano d’Abruzzo

Orzo Salad paired nicely with a Trebbiano for Wine Pairing Weekend 2.

Italian wine tends to be very food-friendly, so it’s great having Jen from Vino Travels: An Italian Wine Blog participating in our Wine Pairing Weekend events.  For the July #winePW event “Refreshing Summer Wine Pairings”, Jen paired orzo salad with the the 2012 I Lauri Lume Trebbiano d’Abruzzo. Sounds like a great match to me! The salad had a variety of veggies along with some tasty Pecorino cheese from Tuscany.  Trebbiano is of the many wonderful Italian white grape varietals. Jen reports that:

“On the nose this trebbiano had lots of citrus and minerality to it with a hint of petroleum. It was dry with some grassy notes on the palate. Throughout it had refreshing acidity creating a nice crisp wine.

Get all the details on Jen’s pairing, including more background on the wine, over in her #winePW 2 post. Keep an eye on all her Italian wine posts on Vino Travels, and check out the other #winePW 2 pairings via this roundup post.
