Wine Pairing Suggestion

A light to medium-bodied white wine such as Falanghina or Vermentino pairs excellently with Baccalà Neapolitan Style. The crisp acidity and citrus notes of these wines complement the salty and savory flavors of the cod, while their subtle minerality harmonizes beautifully with the tomato sauce and capers.
