It's the Boar Head cheese roll and I need a wine to pair it with. The Chowhound oenophiles came through on my last request for St. Andre cheese. Would love some help w/ this one. Thanks.

      Tocai would be tasty. Fiano would probably work too.

          Slightly blasphemous, but a good Rioja would pair well with that.

            Alot of wines would work here. Some will hit the prosciutto better, some the pepper better...

            At the end of the day I'm assuming the prosciutto is the dominant flavor therefore I'd look at barbera or cabernet....

              Rose: Ceresuolo, Rosato/Rosado, French Rose
              Red: Dolcetto, Grenache/Garnacha, Beaujolais. Cab is too heavy.
              White: Tocai Friulano, Arneis
