Wine pairing notes

The Dan Dan Spinach Noodles could appear like a simple delicate dish, but the spices create a complex and powerful mouthful. In particular, the bittersweet aftertaste characterizes this dish.

That's why Donna Marzia Primitivo is a very good match. In fact, the smooth integrated tannins help to balance the smooth texture of the noodles without enhancing the bitter aftertaste. Moreover, the tertiary aromas of the wine combine with the spicy aftertaste, softening the bittersweet aromas.
