Creamy pasta. Full-bodied wine. These two items complement each other wonderfully in a romantic setting. Pasta and wine bring a semblance of Italian finery to a quiet home dining experience. Pasta and wine are inherently sensual. The enticing aromas, arousing scents, sweet and bubbly flavors, and even the process of uncorking a bottle of wine and sharing it with your partner, not knowing what it's going to taste like, is an experience like undressing. Wine is a pleasurable treat for the senses, palate, mind, and libido.
