Chicken Marsala Wine Pairing

Chicken has fairly neutral flavors. So, when pairing wines with Chicken Marsala, it's all about the sauce.

Lighter, low-tannin red wines or fuller-bodied white wines will match the weight of the dish without overpowering it.

For white wines, Chenin Blanc is a great option. Look for ones from Savennières in Loire Valley or from South Africa.

Chardonnay also works well. Ones that have creamy flavors and a little oak are a match for this rich sauce.

For red wines, Pinot Noir is the perfect match. It's low tannin and develops aromas of mushrooms as it ages.

Light-bodied and fruity Gamay is also a great option. This grape is most often found in France's Beaujolais region.
