There’s nothing quite like a homemade bowl of pasta at the end of a long day. But to make a pasta meal even better, serve a hearty glass of Italian wine alongside it… and for extra points serve the pasta in a stylish bowl!
Heather Muriello’s (@WineFarer) Instagram post features the ultimate Italian wine and pasta pairing: Agricola Punica’s Montessu Isola dei Nuraghi IGT + Busiate with Radish Greens & Basil served in an Italian Phrase bowl from QBCucina, which translates to “Love Fades, Hunger Doesn’t”.

@WineFarer: “HAVE YOU HEARD OF CARIGNANO?
📚While of Spanish origin, this grape variety grows exceptionally well in the warm, well exposed sandy soils of wait for it…. Sardinia 🇮🇹, specifically the Basso Sulcis region. While is drinks very well on it’s own it is a fabulous variety to blend.
🍷The Montessu Isola dei Nuraghi IGT is a blend of 60% Carignano, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot, 10% Syrah. A full bodied red with stunning black fruit, saline, textured leather and speckles of black pepper.
🍝 An addicting pairing with @pastasocialclub’s Busiate w/ Radish Greens & Basil recipe in @qbcucina’s adorable Italian Phrase bowls!”
