Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Gruener Veltliner
Salad works really well with Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Gruener Veltliner. Sauvignon Blanc and Gruner Veltliner both have herby notes that complement salads with enough acid to match tart vinaigrettes, while a Chardonnay can be a good pick for creamy salad dressings. The Tenuta di Nozzole Le Bruniche Chardonnay with a 4.4 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 12 dollars per bottle.
Tenuta di Nozzole Le Bruniche ChardonnayNozzole Le Bruniche is an elegant and distinctive expression of the Chardonnay variety, with a clean, fragrant bouquet of white and tropical fruits offset by slight nuances of toast. On the palate, it shows a superb balance of fruit ripeness underscored by a fresh acidity and structure of medium body, with an overall impression of delicate complexity. These are repeated in the clean, persistent finish, which ends on a subtle toasty note.
