For Bolognese Sauce it is natural to choose an Italian wine.

The light list pairs best with tomato-sauce acidity. The strong list goes best with meat-based red sauces.

If your wine is low in acidity, the result is an unpleasant flat and metallic taste.

Tannins are welcome, especially if your bolognese sauce is very meaty (beef more than pork).

Go Local

Make it a habit to eat and drink local. Expand your skills to understand the passion that wine communicates. Explore the range of possibilities a grape can express through culture, terroir, and climate.
