Wine: What to drink with pizza
Sunday 29 January 2012
Ripasso Valpolicello Classico 2009
Whatever your topping choice, pizza is straightforward robust fare requiring similar wines: anything refined or expensive is wasted. This is perfect, ripe and fruity, given depth by adding dried grapes and a little oak ageing.
£8.99 Marks and Spencer
La Vieille Ferme Cotes Du Ventoux 2010
Not all pizza wines have to be Italian - a medium-bodied, southern French blend, bursting with warmth and spice, works well. Great value from the renowned Perrins family.
£7.49 Waitrose £6.39 Majestic (for two, if you buy six bottles; otherwise £7.99)
The Society's Australian Shiraz-Cabernet
Terrific bargains are to be found in The Wine Society's introductory range, such as this fulsome red with enough body to match all tomato-based Mediterranean foods as well as grilled meats.
£7.50 The Wine Society
