Douro Tinto, 2012
The fine wooden aromas and flavors of dark cherries, juniper berries, and dark almonds go well with whole wheat pasta. In the glass, the ruby red wine displays its beautiful tannic structure at a drinking temperature of about 16°C (61°F).
Cook pasta in plenty of salted boiling water, according to package instructions, for approx. 10 – 12 min. until al dente. Drain, save some pasta water, and set aside.
