Pairings | Spaghetti and meatballs
Spaghetti and meatballs is a really rich pasta dish you need to wash down with a refreshing red - preferably Italian.
There was a time, about 10 years ago, when I wrote a lot about Merlot which was widely regarded as wine world’s alternative to Chardonnay - an easy drinking red wine that went with almost any meal.
Meatballs are essentially comfort food so you don’t want to drink anything too fancy with them but you do need something equally delicious - usually red in my book
There’s a lot of talk about how the wines of a region tend to match its food but that seems truer of Tuscany than almost anywhere else.
Malbec is getting so popular it may have become one of your favourite reds but what are the best kind of dishes to eat with it?
