A Spanish Red Works with a Spaghetti Bolognese

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.
