Smoked Salmon Bagel

Pair it with Dolcetto.

Salmon is a classic bagel preparation. The pairing must be something bright and fruity with subtle earth tones – like a Dolcetto. These wines can handle a slight chill. They are fairly low in tannins. Acidity flows. The bitter, earthy notes are a great foil for smoked salmon. Alcohol levels tend to be moderate - a huge plus for day-time drinkers.

Dolcetto is a Piemontese grape sometimes described as the “every day drinking Barolo”. Dogliani DOCG is the region of choice; their Dolcetto wines are renowned for complexity.  California, Washington and Oregon are good bets, too. To try:
