Pasta A classic partner to pasta is Italian wine, however there's a world of delicious options to choose from. It's always best to pick your wine according to the sauce the pasta will be served with - so here's a quick guide to the most popular. Top Tips Creamy Sauces - Frascati, unoaked Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc are all good matches. Cheese Sauces - go for a light and crisp white - Pinto Grigio is a winner. Tomato Sauces - crisp dry whites work well here too but you can also try a light Italian red. Sangiovese-based blends are great with a tomato and garlic sauce. Pesto - there are no hard and fast rules but we would recommend dry, crisp whites with the popular green pesto sauce. Meat sauces - robust Italian reds work well with Spaghetti Bolognese or Lasagne. Spicy - if your sauce has chilli, be versatile and go for a light red or crisp white. Fruity Sangiovese, Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc will all work well.
