Oak-aged Chardonnay displays an inherent attractive richness that makes it a perfect match for baked fresh salmon with aromatic herbs. A pairing with hard, mature cheeses, such as Parmigiano Reggiano or Grana Padano, brings out the best of its seductive nature. It is also worth trying with dark meats, such as guinea fowl prepared with hot spicy sauces. Excellent with pasta, rice or polenta dishes with white meat ragù or cheese-based sauces
