The Wine You Should Start Serving With Chicken Piccata
Chicken piccata is a dish bursting with lemony flavors and zesty aromas. To truly elevate and complement this classic Italian dish, try it with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc.
Sauvignon Blanc is known for its bright acidity and crisp notes, so it's perfect to pair with the lemon sauce and briny capers. The wine cleanses the palate between each bite.
When selecting a wine to pair with chicken piccata, look for wines with crisp acidity to cut through the richness of the sauce, as well as bright citrus, fruity, or floral flavors.
For red wine, a light-bodied and fruit-forward Pinot Noir can be delightful. Its soft tannins and bright berry notes provide a gentle counterpoint to the lemon sauce's acidity.
