Hello, fellow chicken parm-ites! Over the past few weeks, I have tried to come up with ideas and suggestions that make our beloved chicken parm one of the finest dishes. And I assume, you might have tried out my suggestions and impressed your guests.

But has it ever happened to you that your stomach was so full after eating delectable chicken parm and you started second-guessing your choice of creamy dessert? Well, it has happened to me! I am guessing it might have happened to you too!

At that moment, I decided to look for something that has a creamy texture yet didn’t fill my stomach too much. And that’s how I found out about Italian dessert wines! Yes, that’s right! Italian dessert wines are a great way to eat the cake without actually eating it. You can complement your exquisite chicken parm meal with these three popular Italian dessert wines.

Passito di Pantelleria - This Italian dessert wine comes from a small island that is located between Italy and Africa. Made from sweet and aromatic Zibibbo grapes, Passito di Pantelleria will help you win the hearts of your guests. And why not! This wine has been associated with stories of Goddess Tanita winning the heart of Apollo or the story of famous womanizer Giacomo Casanova offering it to women he wanted to seduce. Passito di Pantelleria is a perfect choice of Italian dessert wine if you are offering it on your date night!

Vin Santo - Also came to be known as Holy Wine, Vin Santo is another Italian dessert wine that can be offered after a hearty chicken parm meal. Made from Malvasia and Trebbiano varieties, Vin Santo has a viscous and rich golden appearance. When you drink Vin Santo, you will experience a smooth taste of nuts and caramel along with a scent of apricots. This wine is great for every occasion and will give a satisfactory end to your dinner night!

Moscato d'Asti - Made from Moscato bianco grapes, some of the oldest grapes variety, this wine has been used as a digest if during evening meals. The wine is effervescent, gently sweet, and has low alcohol content. Since it has low alcohol content, it can also be used as a dessert wine after lunch. The wine has a musky aroma with a taste of dried apricots and oranges. So, whether you have guests over for lunch or dinner, Moscato d'Asti is a perfect choice of Italian dessert wines!

I have been an ardent fan of chicken parm since my childhood. And I am always looking for ways that enhance the overall taste, texture, and flavor of this dish. That’s why; I am always traveling in NYC and beyond to find the finest chicken parm in the region.
