The App: A thin crust pizza with tomatoes, red onions and cheese. Oh my.
Jameson’s Pick: Felsina Chianti Classico 2008
Like many, I initially thought Chianti came in a straw-wrapped bottle that, when empty, you stuck a candle in to adorn the kitchen table of your first apartment. Since that time I’ve come to appreciate Chianti as an underrated gem that delivers quality and the ultimate in food and wine comfort when paired with any red-sauced Italian dish. With apologies to spaghetti, when I think red sauce, I think pizza. Who doesn’t love pizza?
The hardest part of a pizza night is getting everyone to agree on the toppings. The bad news is, this is an argument that can get heated. The good news is, Chianti, a smooth elegant red with a perfect style-to-substance ratio, is versatile enough to go with whatever ends up adorning your pie. Veggies? Meats? Both? No problem. Chianti is the pizza peacemaker.
