You can't compete with the tomato sauce...You can't match it, and you dang sure don't want to clash with it. The benefit to pairing with the Kolch is the alcohol soluble flavor that is in the sauce. When you pair with a neutral sort of drink, you get the benefit of not competing with the subtle flavors, and you will enjoy your tomato based meals like never before.
It's for this reason that I NEVER pair Italian food with any wine except a light crisp white wine. I don't care to improve the wine with food, I'm looking to make the food as good as possible.
Seriously. I'm here for BEER
It's Not The Size Of Your Rig That Counts....It's How Often You Use It.
