La Gazzetta del Mezzogiorno, un abbinamento gourmet

The `` Gazzetta del Mezzogiorno '' talks about the pairing of Giuseppe Riontino's gourmet pizza (Canneto Beach 2, Margherita di Savoia) paired in contrast by the professional Sommelier Antonio Riontino, brother and manager of the Canneto Beach 2 reality, iconic for the Apulian cuisine !

A combination by contrast: with the sweet tendency and fatness of the pizza, the effervescence creates a perfect combination for both the structure of the pizza and the wine.
