Elevate Your Pizza and Pasta Experience With These Top Red Wine Picks at Mario's Pizza and Wine Bar.


Pizza and pasta are two of the most popular Italian dishes that are enjoyed worldwide. At Mario's Pizza and Wine Bar, we believe that wine is an essential part of the Italian dining experience. Pairing the right red wine with your pizza or pasta can take your dining experience to a whole new level. In this blog, we will explore some of the best red wine picks to pair with your pizza and pasta at Mario's Pizza and Wine Bar. All wine Varietals listed below are available at Mario's!

  1. Cabernet Sauvignon - J Lohr

Cabernet Sauvignon is a full-bodied red wine that has high tannins and a bold flavor profile. This wine is a great match for rich and meaty pasta dishes like spaghetti with meatballs, bolognese, and fettuccine Alfredo with grilled chicken. The tannins in Cabernet Sauvignon help to cut through the richness of the sauce and complement the meaty flavors. At Mario's Pizza and Wine Bar, we recommend trying a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon with our signature spaghetti and meatballs.

  1. Chianti - DaVinci

Chianti is a classic Italian red wine that is made from Sangiovese grapes. This wine is known for its acidity, which helps to cut through the richness of the cheese and tomato sauce on pizza. Chianti is a great match for pizza with tomato sauce, mozzarella, and basil. At Mario's Pizza and Wine Bar, we recommend trying a glass of Chianti with our Margherita pizza.

  1. Pinot Noir - Sea and Sun

Pinot Noir is a medium-bodied red wine that has low tannins and a delicate flavor profile. This wine is a great match for lighter pasta dishes like seafood linguine, pesto pasta, and chicken alfredo. The light body and acidity of Pinot Noir complement the flavors of seafood and green herbs in pasta dishes. At Mario's Pizza and Wine Bar, we recommend trying a glass of Pinot Noir with our Lobster in Pink Sauce!.

  1. Sangiovese - Centi

Sangiovese is another classic Italian red wine that is a great match for pizza and pasta dishes. This wine has a medium body with moderate tannins and a fruity flavor profile with notes of cherry and plum. Sangiovese is a versatile wine that pairs well with a variety of pizza and pasta dishes. At Mario's Pizza and Wine Bar, we recommend trying a glass of Sangiovese with our classic Margherita pizza or our penne alla vodka.

  1. Merlot - Becker

Merlot is a smooth and medium-bodied red wine that pairs well with pizza and pasta dishes that have a bit of spice. The wine has a soft and velvety texture with notes of black cherry, plum, and vanilla. At Mario's Pizza and Wine Bar, we recommend trying a glass of Merlot with our spicy Capo, Mary's Arrabiata pizza or any of our penne arrabbiata.


In conclusion, pairing the right red wine with your pizza and pasta can elevate your dining experience at Mario's Pizza and Wine Bar.
