Recommended wine: Chianti, Verdicchio, Trebbiano

Calzone works really well with Chianti, Verdicchio, and Trebbiano. Italians know food and they know wine. Trebbiano and Verdicchio are Italian white wines that pair well with fish and white meat, while Chianti is a great Italian red for heavier, bolder dishes. You could try Santa Margherita Chianti Classico Riserva. Reviewers quite like it with a 4.8 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 27 dollars per bottle.

The aromas of this complex red wine range from cherries and plums to gladiolus flowers and earthy flint. The tannic, oak-aged flavors are bright and round, with a dry, warm, earthy finish. Recommended for barbecued meat, like sliced Chianina steak, or with game, such as pheasant stuffed with truffles. It is also excellent with mature cheese.
