What is the best wine for pasta?

I am having a dinner for my husband and need wine suggestions.


Answer by  DGuillen74 (118)

Wine and pasta are very diverse, so this could be good and bad. If you're talking pasta with white sauce, I would go with a nice crisp chardonnay. Kendall Jackson is the best. If you're going pasta with a red sauce, I would recommend a Yellow Tail Shiraz. Bon Appetit!

If the sauce you are serving with the pasta is white or cream (like Al Fredo) it should be served with a Bianco or similar white wine. A marinara would be complemented by a Pinot Grigio. As always your personal preference is the best instrument of measure unless you are preparing a meal for a food critic, enjoy!

It will depend largely on the sauce you will use for the pasta. A simple tomato sauce calls for a Montepulciano D'Abruzzo. If the sause is more herbal or includes mushrooms try a Chianti Classico. A meat sauce will require a Primitivo based wine or a Nebbiolo D'Alba red. White sauces, like an alfredo call for a dry Pinot Grigio.


Answer by  Nadine (206)

It depends on your sauce. If it is a red and spicy tomato sauce you want to go with a full bodied red. If a white sauce go with white

You want a strong red wine. A merlot or chianti. This assumes you are using a tomato based sauce. However, if you are using a butter or cream sauce you should consider a hearty white wine.

This is the type of pasta sauce. Most Red wine will do the trick. Merlot is a nice one. Pasta like Spaghetti, Risotto, and Macaroni.


Answer by  Huntress (1935)

For red pasta (marinara base) try a red wine such as Chianti, Barolo or even a Cabernet or Merlot. For white pasta (olive oil or butter base) then a white such as Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay or a Soave. My favorites are the Barolo and the Pino Grigio.
