We are pairing our 2017 Nebbiolo and 2017 Barbera with this classic Italian dish dating back to the 19th century! Its ingredients typically include tomatoes, olive oil, anchovies, olives, capers, and garlic, giving you all the flavors of the Mediterranean in one bite!
  • 1 lb spaghetti
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 1/2 cups plum tomatoes
  • 1 cup greek olives, pitted and cut in half
  • 4 anchovies
  • 1/4 cup capers
  • Kosher salt
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

In a blender, combine anchovies and plum tomatoes.

Heat oil in a large skillet and cook garlic on low heat until golden. Add the tomato mixture to the skillet. Stir in remaining ingredients. Let simmer for at least 30 minutes.

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to boil. Cook pasta for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente, according to package directions. Drain.

Toss pasta with sauce. Serve with warm bread and a glass of 2017 Mediterranean Vineyards Barbera or
2017 Mediterranean Vineyards Nebbiolo.
