A classic! Red wine is always an excellent choice for spaghetti. Zweigelt and Blaufränkisch are ideal, although it should not be too heavy and tannic. On the other hand a little robustness and a touch of acidity are often beneficial. Wines with a similar style to Chianti are proven choices: spicy Zweigelt, St. Laurent or perhaps a blend with wonderful minerality. The cheese and béchamel sauce in lasagne opens up the option of classic to medium-bodied Veltliner.
