Sangiovese & Sauce: Italian Vino Meets Up with a Popular Chain's New Pie Recipe
What to nosh on for a casual Sunday night dinner? Sometimes there's nothing easier or tastier than pizza and red wine.
I quickly discovered that Santa Cristina Sangiovese REALLY likes Domino's Pizza, especially the thin crust variety topped with extra sauce and onion.
The popular chain's newer recipe for pie seems to have more flavor and zip to its peppery sauce and smoother-than-usual and slightly-browned cheese, a great match for the bold fruit and hint of earth I found in the wine.
Add some Sunday Night Football into the mix and I had a first down...down the hatch, that is.
