What Wine Should You Order With Your Pasta Dinner?, Lexington, North Carolina

Wine and Italian food have long enjoyed a complementary relationship. In fact, few drinks pair more perfectly with a savory pasta dish than a delicious glass of your favorite varietal. Original Christo’s is Lexington, NC’s favorite restaurant for authentic and mouthwatering pasta. Their wine menu features the varietals and blends that enhance the flavor of their appetizing recipes.

Wine to Order with Your Pasta Dinner

1. Shrimp Fettuccine With Pinot Grigio

Italian FoodSeafood lovers will delight in this classic Italian food. Perfectly seasoned shrimp is sauteed to perfection and tossed in a light, creamy Alfredo sauce on a bed of fettuccine pasta. Pinot grigio’s refreshing and crisp mouthfeel stands up to the richness of the sauce, and its citrus and honeysuckle flavors make the ideal flavor match for the shrimp. 

2. Lasagna With Chianti

One of the most beloved Italian foods, lasagna is made from layers of pasta, mozzarella, and a zesty meat sauce. Wine from the Chianti region of Italy is largely made with the Sangiovese grape, which mirrors the peppery spice of the red sauce featured in the recipe. Bold enough to stand up to the tartness of tomatoes but subtle enough to not overpower the cheese, Chianti is the best choice to pair with lasagna. 

3. Chicken Parmesan With Chardonnay

This beloved recipe can be easily matched with either a full-bodied white or a delicate red. Chardonnay, a robust and creamy white wine, is the perfect compromise. Its full body and oaky flavor complement the meat sauce, while buttery textures enhance the marinated chicken exquisitely.

The next time you enjoy authentic Italian food, you’ll know exactly which wines to pair with it. Original Christo’s serves up savory pasta dishes and piping hot pizza in a welcoming atmosphere. Their wine menu boasts selections handpicked for their ability to amplify the flavors of the food. Make your reservation or order delivery by calling (336) 243-­2532, and browse their menu online.
