Food & Wine Pairing: Bucatini all’Amatriciana

February 17th, 2017

This week, we look to Italy for both legs of our food and wine pairing. [level-members]

Pasta “all’Amatriciana” is hardly an unknown dish but not one as common as many you’ll see on Italian restaurant menus and is certainly not a common go-to.

This Bucatini all’Amatriciana recipe from Food52 is fairly standard, fairly simple, and fairly delicious.

For wine, you might consider suggesting a medium-bodied Italian red, like a Sangiovese or Montepulciano. Both varietals are popular enough for there to be interesting wines at many different price points.
