Panzanella is an Italian salad made from pieces of stale, moistened bread, with the addition of tomatoes, onions, or basil, and a dressing of vinegar and olive oil. Panzanella can sometimes include other additional ingredients such as cucumbers, olives, and cheese.
It was first described in 1500, in a poem by a famous artist and poet named Bronzino and has remained a classic Tuscan summer dessert filled with fresh and tasty seasonal ingredients ever since.
If you're looking for a wine pairing, it goes perfectly with an aromatic Vermentino – a classic for pairing with light warm weather dishes. Vermentino’s warm Mediterranean origin gives it a fruity aroma with hints of mineral.
