An Italian White is Good with Spicy Spaghetti

We found a great midweek pasta meal on BBC Food – Creamy Chilli, Bacon and Tomato Spaghetti by Justine Pattison.

Spaghetti is coated in a sauce containing onions, streaky bacon (we used pancetta instead), garlic, chilli flakes, chopped tomatoes, tomato purée, oregano and cream. A tasty and delicious recipe with a spicy kick.

We opened a bottle of Visionario 2011 Venezie IGT, an aromatic Italian white blend from the Sunday Times Wine Club.2015-01-28 18.04.59

We found this wine refreshing with creamy grapefruit flavours and a good match with the pasta. We thought the wine might pair even better with less spicy dishes.
