Usually, the taste pasta is determined by the type of sauce with which it’s associated, it is why we first discuss the best wines to pair according to the chosen sauce:

- Pesto sauces and other fungi: for these delicious plates of pasta you can take preferably white or Sauvignon Blanc breeding.
- Tomato sauces: probably the most popular, and very delicious too. It is advisable to combine with light rosé wines, because, again, the acidity of these ties very well with tomato. If you are more of tradition, you can accompany with Chianti, as dictated by the Italians.
- Pasta with seafood and fish: for these dishes whites will be your best choice, especially Pinot and Malvasia. Also, a good cava or dry champagne can be a good choice if you prefer them.
- Pasta with meat: the taste of a strong red wine will give your palate a full and pleasurable satisfaction.
- Light Pasta: those that are only accompanied by some mozzarella cheese and vinaigrette fall very well with rosé wines.
