South­ern Ital­ian Reds

Food & Drink - - LIGHT BITES -

Party plan­ning al­ways starts with a bud­get, and the red wines of south­ern Italy rep­re­sent some of the best val­ues on LCBO shelves. Grape va­ri­eties such as Aglian­ico, Ne­groa­maro and Prim­i­tivo pro­duce hon­est wines that are ro­bust and full of char­ac­ter. With grippy tan­nins and nervy acid­ity, these wines come into their own with food and have a par­tic­u­lar affin­ity for grilled or roasted dishes, with Ne­groa­maro and Prim­i­tivo be­ing par­tic­u­larly in­spired pair­ings for smoked meats.
