Pairing of the Day: December 13-17, 2010
Milk-soaked bread helps make chef Massimiliano Alajmo's beef-and-pork meatballs incredibly light; bits of chopped olive make them extra-flavorful. The thick tomato sauce coats the meatballs nicely and doubles as an excellent pasta sauce.
Pairing: Spicy, cherry-scented Tuscan red blend: 2008 Tenuta di Ghizzano Il Ghizzano.
