Oh FSM yes! Best drink in the world. But in addition...

... Seems an overwhelming vote for chianti so far.... got to admit it's something I will go white with, but red is where it is at really, no?

Merlot? Malbec? Yummy. Pinotage if the meal's 'light'. Oh! ..and I just discovered Tarrango... gorgeous! Might break Capellini's rule with that one as it's very .... er.. 'thin' like white is somehow? Perfect in summer. Supposed to be a cold served red too actually now I think about it but it's great at room temp too.

Or Pironi. :)

I have never enjoyed chianti. I like a more full-bodied red, and I find chiantis very weak and thin. I like a wine with legs.

A Good Chilean Cab. for red sauces or (don't laugh) if its something like an Alfredo sauce..I like a sweet Muscatine

When a thoughtful and unblessed Mohammedan examines the Westminster Catechism, he knows that beyond any question I am spiritually insane. I cannot prove to him that he is insane, because you never can prove anything to a lunatic [...] He cannot prove to me that I am insane, for my mind has the same defect that afflicts his... When I look around me, I am often troubled to see how many people are mad." -MT

It all depends on the sauce. For a heavy, beefy, meaty red tomato sauce you could serve something as bold as a cabernet, but with light oil and chicken you might want to shift toward a white. I like a sauvignon blanc, but only a good one that's not all acidy. You need to step up to $10 or more a bottle or it'll burn your throat!

I am a purist - I believe reds are only for red meats and tomato-based dishes, so if it was an oil-based or alfredo style sauce, I'd go with a white wine. I happen to like a nice Chardonnay.

And beer is always an option. In fact, beer pairings are becoming much more fashionable.

Someone said it in another topic, but there's always kool-aid and cheap vodka. Dirt cheap and so many flavors to choose from! :)
