Beverage pairing: Iron Horse Vineyards Rosato di Sangiovese, California. A white wine might be the first thing that comes to mind for a dish flavored with spice and cheese, but the bright red berry fruit in this rosé makes a nice contrast with all the black pepper, and the wine has plenty of vibrancy to stand up to the cheese.
