Which wine pairs well with bass fillet?

Pinot Nero Alto Adige DOC
Fish in a red-wine sauce pairs beautifully with red wines, provided they have a lot of fruitiness and very little tannin; Pinot Noir can often provide both, as well as a delicate acidity that leads to a vibrant mouthfeel.

Lagrein Rosé Alto Adige DOC
The Lagrein Rosé shows off its best side with this dish, providing a pleasant freshness and a fine liveliness. 


Step 1

Cook the broccoli rabe for 5-6 minutes in boiling salted water. Drain and fry with a little oil, the anchovies, and salt and pepper.

Step 2

Add the wine, honey and cloves to a small pan. Reduce over a low heat to a quarter of its volume, and strain.

Step 3

Peel and grate the potatoes. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 4

Debone the bass filets and cover the fleshy side with the grated potatoes. Brown in a frying pan before transferring to a baking tray.

Step 5

Finish in the oven for 10 minutes at 180°C.

Step 6

Plate the fish and broccoli rabe and finish with the red wine reduction.
