Michele Chiarlo Barbera d'Asti Le Orme 2014

The Dish: Pizza

Grape: Barbera

Barbera from northern Italy is a natural choice for pizza – in addition to aromas of wild berries and herbs, the wine possesses plenty of freshness and lift to match the acidity of the tomato sauce and balance the richness of the cheese.

Recommended Wine: Michele Chiarlo Barbera d’Asti Le Orme 2014 ($19)

Colome Estate Malbec 2015 The Dish: Barbeque

Grape: Malbec

Argentinian Malbec is an ideal companion to American barbeque, which pairs tender smoked meats with sweet and tangy sauces. The wines have plenty of body to stand up to the rich proteins, and add dimension to the sauces with notes of dark fruit, mocha, and coffee bean.

Recommended Wine: Colome Estate Malbec 2015 ($34)

Louis Martini Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 The Dish: Steak

Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon

A red wine with bold flavors is required to stand up to the richness of a grilled steak, and Cabernet Sauvignon has long been considered the classic pairing. Cabernet’s formidable tannins provide an astringency that cuts through the fat of a well marbled steak and refreshes the palate after every bite.
