- jackpinot - Sushi's new friend!
(Posted on 4/6/2016)Living in Japan, it's almost expected to order beer or sake with your favorite sushi. Imagine my surprise when I paired a chilled bottle of the Monte Dei Cocci Fiano with my plate of Otoro and salmon sushi! The delicate yet dry Fiano was the perfect compliment to the fatty texture found in fishes like Tuna and salmon. I got the full seafood experience without it being interfere by the overly acidic taste of beer. Loved it!
