The Daily Drink: Rice and Lentils

When it comes to flavor, the pancetta, tomato paste, and white wine are the workhorses of this recipe. When it comes to texture, it’s the rice. For the beverage pairing, you want something that pulls it all together yet is light enough to go alongside the first-course or soup of today’s recipe. That something is rosé wine. Try the 2009 Domaine Couly Dutheil Rene Couly Rosé ($15), which Boston and Paris-based importer Cynthia Hurley describes this way: “Arnaud’s rosé brings beautiful warm spring and summer days right to my lips. You can taste the hint of red berries (rosé should never just taste like pink white wine) and there is that zing of fresh, perfect acidity in your mouth. The color is like a perfect sunset after a perfect day of summer.”
