Tagliata (sliced beef fillet), Scaloppine (veal cutlet) and Bistecca (steak) – Italian meat dishes are simple and usually grilled or quickly pan-fried. Red wine or white wine? A question that is not so easy to answer as both are possible depending on the type of wine. White wines should be full-bodied and ripe. Recommended reds include smooth Zweigelt, earthy round St. Laurent, fruity Blaufränkisch or a powerful and spicy blend.
