Panini is literally the Italian word for a warm or grilled sandwich. It is fun to say Panini but if you wish to call this a sandwich, we will not judge, especially, since we have given this Italian sandwich lots of Greek overtones.
The bread is an important feature with a Panini, but here the contents are king. This is a healthy meal that is satisfying to make and eat. The flavor of the artisanal light yellow, sharp flavored Greek (Kefalotiri) Cheese, in our highly spreadable Roasted Red Pepper & Cheese Spread, is delicious when paired with a hardy cured meat. This sandwich, oops, Panini is flavor layering at its best.
The key to picking a wine to go with this Greek Deli Panini is too choose one with a higher acidity; bubbly is wonderful. Perhaps, champagne? Amber ales with a mild, sweet flavor also balance the salty, spiciness.
