Nothing says "Italy" like a bottle of wine and a dish of rich pastas! Italian wine and cuisine matching is a breeze if you follow the basic rule of red for red and white for white. When eating pasta with tomato sauce, choose a medium-bodied red wine to accompany it. Wines that go well with creamy pasta dishes include full-bodied whites and mild reds. Light or medium-bodied white wines pair very well with seafood pastas. The lighter-bodied white wines go well with vegetable (or herb) based pasta recipes.
