Pairing Wine & Tuna
wine guypairing winepairing wine & tuna

This undoubtedly calls for a white wine with high acidy. This would
compliment the Tuna, French beans and romaine lettuce on the plate. Though with this simple presentation I would be hesitant to pair it with something too over powering, with the subtleness of tuna a big "oaky" Chardonnay or Riesling might mask the main component too much.

So I would consider a simple Italian white like a Greco di Tufo. The largest and most prestigious producer in this region is Mastroberardino. Also I might think of the Pinot Gris grape grown here in the US, a couple of producers that I enjoy are Chalk Hill and King Estate.
