Wine to try
2005 Tinja Sangiovese Merlot Barbera, Mudgee, A$18
Serve this meal with a classy, medium-weight, savoury dry red such as the Lowe Family Wine Company’s affordable Tinja sangiovese blend. The earthy wild raspberry fruit flavours of sangiovese forms the wine’s spine, merlot contributes juicy fruit sweetness and barbera offers bright cherry fruit and fresh acidity. The background oak gives a dusty, aniseed complexity. This delicious gentle red happily meets the richness of the béchamel, equals the intensity of the meat and has sufficient freshness to match that of the zucchini casing. Comfort food and wine at its best.
