Recipe Thursday: Barolo and Truffles

As the old saying goes, “What grows together, goes together,” and this couldn’t be more true for Barolo and Piedmont truffles. Autumn is the perfect time to pair these two as our taste buds are drawn to heartier dishes. What could be more divine than Carne Cruda All'albese (Italian-Style Steak Tartare) topped with shaved white truffles, and a glass of Virna Barolo Cannubi Boschis?

What makes this pairing so fantastic is the truffles and Barolo mirror and draw out each other’s earthy and gamey qualities. There’s also a counterbalance at work as the wine’s acidity cuts through the richness of the beef. Since we’re dealing with highly prized truffles here, be sure to use the highest-quality, grass-fed beef you can find.
