Wine Pairings

Asian noodles with tofu
Pair it with: A Tuscan with a twist.
The vermentino grape produces some fascinating wines with a mouth feel and weight rarely found in unoaked Italian whites. This pear-scented example is a surprising match with this Asian-inspired dish.
Our pick: Tommasi Poggio al Tufo Vermentino, Italy, $13.

Substitution Tip:

A bundle of sweet potato noodles (about 223 g), found at Asian grocery stores, will work just as well.
