Match of the week

Lasagna and Georgian saperavi

I’m beginning to think lasagna or lasagne is one of the perfect dishes to pair with a good red wine - it seems to go with practically every bottle you throw at it (metaphorically speaking).

Last week it was a saperavi from Teliani Valley - their Glekhuri Kisishevi Saperavi Qvevri 2021.

It’s aged, as you can see from the name of the wine, in qvevri, the distinctive clay pots that are  used for ageing in Georgia and which give the wine a deeply savoury character.

I always think you need a red with some acidity with lasagne which is a rich dish. But the wine's exotically wild briary fruit was a delicious contrast too.

You can buy it online from The Secret Bottle Shop for £19.95.

There’s no picture of the bottle or the lasagne I’m afraid as I was round at a friend’s and off-duty so this is a stock photo.
