Q:

What are the best wines to be paired with lasagna?

A:

Many wine enthusiasts prefer a Chianti paired with lasagna as it contains a higher acidic level and balances the taste of lasagna well. Chianti wines are Italian red wines made with plum, cherry, orange peel and a hint of almond.

Some other wines that tend to be paired with lasagna are Barbera and Barolo. Barbera is a red wine flavored with black cherry and a mixture of other fruits. Barolo is also a red wine mixed with several fruits, such as cherry and raspberries, with a hint of vanilla spice. Red wines are the usual choice to be paired with something as rich as lasagna. The acidity in red wines pairs nicely with the heartiness of tomato sauce, which makes for a nicely balanced meal.

    What are some red, semi-sweet wines?

    A:

    Some red, semi-sweet wines are moscato, cesanese, saperavi, merlot and alazani. Some of these wines can be blended with others to create semi-sweet table wines. Generally, semi-sweet red wines have less tannin. Tannins give wine the sensation of being dry.
