Canned vs. Marinated Artichoke Hearts We vastly prefer canned artichoke hearts to the marinated type that come in small jars. The marinated ones often have an acrid taste. When using the canned artichokes, drain and rinse them first to remove any "tinny" flavor from the can.
Artichokes usually make wines seem sweeter. Accordingly, we suggest a red or white wine with loads of acidity. A Barbera or Dolcetto from the Piedmont region of Italy or an Italian Pinot Bianco or Sauvignon Blanc would all be suitable.
