Recommended wine: Cava, Grenache, Shiraz
Chili can be paired with Cava, Grenache, and Shiraz. These juicy reds don't have too much tannin (important for spicy foods), but a sparkling wine like cava can tame the heat even better. The Casteller Cava Rosado with a 4.4 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 16 dollars per bottle.
