We had a favourite midweek staple tonight – Spaghetti Bolognese. I spotted a Spanish red that I thought might go well and went for a bottle of Finca el Cuento Syrah 2008, a Spanish red from Sunday Times Wine Club. Funnily enough it was partly because of a negative review on the Laithwaites website that I chose the wine. Someone had criticised it for being acidic and I thought that might actually improve the match. It did. This medium-bodied, “brambly” wine went as well with the Spaghetti Bolognese as some Chiantis.
