When it comes to pairing truffles with wine, you can’t go wrong with aged wines of earthy notes to serve with savoury truffles, while a truffle risotto calls for lightly oaked wines like Chardonnay.
Black ruffles are most commonly used with pasta and rice dishes as well as pork, beef or venison, while their white variety go well with hard cheeses, salads, salami, prosciutto, rabbit or veal.
