Recipe Notes

Wine Recommendation: Tassel Ridge Pizzeria & Pasta Too! ®

Pizzeria & Pasta Too! is a dry red, food pairing wine with hints of plum and black cherry on the nose, and it follows with plum on the palate. Made entirely from Sabrevois grapes grown in our Mahaska County, Iowa vineyards, Pizzeria & Pasta Too! pairs well with pizza and pasta with tomato-based sauces. Serve at room temperature.
