Panzanella Salad

Panzanella | Tuscan Bread Salad

Panzanella is a classic Tuscan salad generally made at the peak of the tomato season, as it is one of the key ingredients. It is hearty enough to have for dinner on a warm summer evening, paired harmoniously with a chilled red wine, like Lumavite Devay. The absolute best Panzanella I have ever had was at Osteria Sette di Vino, located in the heart of Pienza.
