Wine Pairings

Saucy beef sandwich
Pair it with: A rich, rambunctious red.
Possibly the best-value Tuscan wine out there, this absolute steal truly shines alongside a hearty beef sandwich. Plump, ripe fruit aromas jump from the glass, along with nuances of roses and spice.

Our pick: Caparzo Sangiovese IGT, Italy, $13.
