Lasagna Soup Wine Pairing

Italian wines and Italian-inspired meals are a match made in heaven, but Italian wines aren’t the only ones that pair well with a comforting dish like lasagna. Check out these options.

Barbera: Michele Chiarlo Barbera d’Asti ~ $15

Barbera’s fruit characteristics and fresh acidity make it a great candidate for Italian dishes with red sauce, like lasagna. Elegant and well-structured with juicy red berries, black cherries, flowers, and peppery spices, this particular Barbera is a complex, smooth, and robust wine at a great price.

Malbec: Catena Malbec ~ $19

This wine is pretty intense with concentrated dark berry flavors along with some plum, toast, and spice. It’s a big wine with rich flavors but has some bright acidity that will help it pair with the rich flavors of the stewed meat sauce.

Sangiovese: Monsanto Chianti Classico Riserva ~ $22

This Chianti red blend is a classic match for lasagna (even a shortcut lasagna like this one). It has intense black cherries, spice, and some smoke aromas, along with some herbal notes. Full-bodied on the palate with lots of red berry fruit, this wine is hearty yet well balanced.

Sangiovese: Castello di Volpaia Chianti Classico Riserva ~ $27

This is an elegant and silky Sangiovese with aromas and flavors of dark cherry, chocolate, and blackberries, along with some plum and spice. Well balanced, with mild tannins, and fresh acidity, this was made for a comforting and savory dish like this meaty lasagna soup.

Shiraz: Oxford Landing Shiraz ~ $9

For something filled with rich fruity flavors, try this Shiraz with bold cherry, blackberry, plums, and spice. It’s pretty concentrated on the palate with more rich berry flavors and mild oak and tannins. This would also be a nice choice for a weeknight value.
