An Italian Red Blend is Good with Spicy Mince Pasta Bake

2015-02-25 18.02.45We were looking for a recipe online for a midweek meal and found Spicy Mince Pasta Bake from RoosterandHen on the AllRecipes website.

We used Penne and this was baked in the oven with a mixture containing onions, garlic, smoked bacon, minced beef, red chilli, mixed herbs, Cayenne pepper, paprika, tomato purée, white wine, chopped canned tomatoes, mushrooms, Mozzarella, Parmesan and breadcrumbs.

We opened a bottle of Bricco Rosso Suagna Langhe Rosso 2008, a medium-bodied Italian red from the Wine Society.

The wine is a blend of Dolcetto and Nebbiolo and we tasted red fruits, especially cherries, vanilla notes with good tannins and acidity on the finish.  A good match.
