Roman foods and wines are ready to make your tour more legit!

You know the fantastic part, you can explore them both on our private tour of the Colosseum.

If you're wondering what wine goes best with Carbonara, we recommend white wine. White wine is especially popular in Rome. Because of the richness of this pasta, a Malvasia-Trebbiano Blend from Lazio is ideal. The flavor profile differs depending on where it is cultivated. However, it is frequently dry, with aromas of white peach and lemon zest, as well as a somewhat sharp green almond note.

We won't advise you not to sample various wine flavors while you are on the wine-tasting tour. You can taste either white wine or red wine. However, if you're wondering which goes best with real carbonara pasta, white wine is the finest choice. Rosé wines from Lake Garda and Abruzzo also go nicely together. But when it comes to red wines, you need to be cautious and don’t try those that are overly tannic. In this case, talk with the local guide, they can suggest best which one you should try.

The best red wines to drink with carbonara are fruity ones with a hint of acidity. Wine's tastes penetrate the pasta's creamy white sauce without overpowering it.

Sparkling wine is also an excellent option. However, we advise you to taste the ones you like since you are taking a Colosseum private guided tour with wine tasting. Consult your local guide for the best advice on which to try.

What wine goes best with carbonara? We already tried many wines and we have come up with the best answer for you. Find the ideal red wine to go with Pasta Alla Carbonara. Red wine goes well with carbonara as long as it has a fruity flavor and isn't overly tannic. You should give Pinot Noir, Chianti Classico, Barbera, and Montepulciano a try with this particular pasta dish.

These light, fruity wines all have a good amount of acidity to cut through the decadent Carbonara sauce. As a result, each sip of wine combines the earthy and subtle flavors coming from the pasta. The wine's flavor and freshness can balance out the sweet tendency of the pasta's savory, hearty, and spicy elements.

Rome, in the Lazio region, is where the renowned pasta carbonara originated. The dish carbonara is still hugely popular not only in Italy but also across the rest of the world. Nowadays both professional chefs and home cooks are constantly modifying it. The incredible versatility of this pasta is one of its best qualities. It goes well with just about anything.

During your Colosseum guided tour, we should definitely try this traditional Roman dish carbonara.

Any dish would go nicely with this traditional Italian carbonara from Rome. This meal goes best with scallops, zucchini, spinach, mushrooms, parmesan chips, etc. given its authenticity and heritage. Oven-roasted salmon or chicken from the Mediterranean could be used. Not to mention a glass of wine to give this meal a complete look.
