Recommended wine: Chianti, Montepulciano, Sangiovese

Chianti, Montepulciano, and Sangiovese are my top picks for Lasagne. Lasagna pairs well with medium-bodied red wine with higher acidity. Sangiovese, Montepulciano, and Chianti all fit the bill. The Tenuta di Nozzole Chianti Classico Riserva ( half-bottle) with a 5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 14 dollars per bottle.

Tenuta di Nozzole Chianti Classico Riserva ( half-bottle)
Crisp, ripe, red berry and cherry aromas are shaped by vibrant, fresh acidity. In the mouth, flavors show classic Sangiovese notes of earth, mushrooms and leather, with a backbone of firm yet elegant tannins. Pairs well with meats and meat pasta sauces, poultry and hard cheeses.
