The Southern Italian Wines at 360
360 Degrees Artisan Pizza offers decadent wines, imported directly from the world-class vineyards of Southern Italy to go with their Neapolitan style pizza and are interesting, unique, and very food-friendly. The Gragnano, for instance, is a bubbly red wine, known around Naples as “Pizza Cola”, reflecting the staple’s light and easily drinkable nature. The Falanghina, a favorite, is a bright white wine indigenous to Southern Italy. Another hit is the Fiano d’Avellino, a crisp white that matches the house made Spinach Tagliatelle and Mushroom Bianca pizzas. For Chardonnay lovers, we have a delicious Sicilian Chardonnay (100% Italian made Chardonnay is quite unusual) made by one of the most well-respected wineries in Italy.
One of the most popular red wines is the Chianti Fiasco, a DOCG which means its grapes were grown and wine made under very strict guidelines, ensuring high quality and taste. For the perfect supplement to the rosso pizza especially the Spicy Lamb Sausage and Proscuitto Fungi, the Aglianico, is guaranteed to hit the spot.
To toast celebrations, Victon Lugaga, manager at 360, recommends the Prosecco DOC Teresa Rizzi, Italy’s well-made sparkling wine. “Alternatively, you can try it as a Spritz. For the perfect sundowner drink on the patio, try the Aperol Spritz, which boasts complex bitter sweet notes.” He points to the Colosi Nerello Mascalese IGT as the ultimate accompaniment to 360’s hearty Braised Beef. “Those who enjoy a Barolo might also enjoy this Sicilian dry red with earth nuances.”
“We are continuously sourcing for new high quality and unique wines from Southern Italy which are value for money for our guests. This has been our promise and our commitment has been proved through menu reviews and the current wine list.” says Victon.
