Japanese dish, vinegared sushi rice-based, garnished with fish and seafood. It may also include fresh vegetables and seaweeds that enhance the taste of the fish. What does sushi taste like? There are many kinds of sushi, variety arises from the preparation and additions whether it is sashimi (raw fish only), sushi (fish and rice) or maki (fish, rice and nori), the tastes are delicate, light and refined, always provided the fish and/or seafood are in perfect condition. In this type of dish, the textures prevail over the flavour.
Claudio which wines would you recommend me?
Due to its delicate composition and pure flavors, I match sushi with wines produced from white varieties: out of sparkling wines to compensate the rice texture, up to white wines, as for instance those ones from Chablis, Penedès, Ribeiro and Rías Baixas appellations, certainly including off-dry wines with good acidity made from Riesling, able to outweigh the extremely pungent flavour of wasabi.
