Sweet red wines are rare. Fruity red wines are far more common, but are more likely to be dry than sweet. Trying to pick a wine that will pair with "all kind of food" is simply impossible. Most red wines don't pair particularly well with fish, but if you stick to a lighter red wine, you have a better chance of a good pairing. Some Pinot Noir wines are light and pair well with fish.

However, with such a broad, general request, I'm guessing that most of the people you're dining with either won't be particularly picky, or will be the ones who stick to only whites or only reds, in which case it's more of a matter of picking a wine they will like for itself than how it pairs. In that case, popular and inexpensive is usually a good choice - maybe the Yellow Tail Shiraz, which is quite popular, familiar to many non-wine drinkers and is likely inexpensive. Similarly, one of the chiantis may be a good choice.

Of course, it would probably be best to ask someone at the restuarant, since they will likely have tasted every one of those wines and be able to provide more specific guidance.

There are probably as many sweet reds as sweet whites but far fewer of either than there are "dry" wines. I agree that it's just not possible to pick a wine that goes with all kinds of food. Nor can I imagine a sweet red wine with fish. No matter how the fish is prepared or what kind of fish it is.  That would truly be a weird taste experience.

On the list, I don't think any are particularly "sweet" in that they'd be considered sweet wine but Yellow Tail has a lot of sugar in it and it's rather sickeningly sweet so if you're OK with that, I'd go with it.  I'd avoid the Chiantis because those are generally quite the opposite.  Sometimes a Shiraz can be ripe and sweet but those on the list are likely to have a good shot of wood too, so I'm not sure how close any of them would come to meeting the specs requested.

Of all the wines on that weird list which has Italian wines labeled "French" wine and which repeats itself a few times, I'd probably go with that Australian Riesling/Gwertz.  It's going to have a nice aroma at least.  The Indian wines are essentially undrinkable.  I haven't had them all but I've had a few and well, I'm not anxiously looking forward to tasting any more in the near future.

Well, to start with, the restaurant is in Pune. If we're talking November, at least the monsoons are over and winter's beginning. I was once caught there during monsoon season where it rained every day for the two weeks I was there (don't ask why I didn't move on earlier). Never understood why apparently the British Raj had it as a second capital during monsoon--never have entirely understood Brit thinking, I suppose. I've heard it's rained every day for a month in some years. Summer is a scorcher there, too, but winter is a time when reds can seem a reasonable choice. Daytime temperatures rise well above 25C, while in the evenings they drop down towards 10C. Moreover, the city, aside from its interesting history, represents a complex, evolving amalgam of a little-more-provincial, older India meeting a modernized, bigger-economy version. Good university there, etc.--all the more reason for an Italian restaurant to do well.

As usual, Greg is spot on with his remarks. Sweet reds with fish are scary to contemplate, unless the fish were deep fried with a sweet&sour sauce and you were maybe drinking Lambrusco. Riesling would be my first choice off the winelist, too, even though it's white, then the other Australian and South African whites. But then I didn't find any fish on the menu, which looked almost completely vegetarian (unless they have a lot of daily specials, or just aren't listing all the ingredients in the menu). Leaving aside the fish issue, there are no obviously 'sweet' red wines on the menu. As Habap mentions, if you're looking for what I think you're looking for, you should be thinking fruity rather than plain sweet, and the Australian reds are the best option. California second. Definitely not the Italians....

From your list the closest might be:  Zonin Montepulciano D'Abruzzo.  The goods ones are delightful quaffers and go well with tomato based dishes.  Texas make a lot of sweet red wines for some reason--perhaps the heat/ripeness/sugar and....local taste?  Good luck.

I wouldn't call the Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 'sweet', though it's probably a bit less tannic than the Brunello on the list....  ;-)

Some other than the Yellowtail from Australia are also fruity, though none on the list are good with fish, as mentioned above.

Am curious, Sharma, why you want to do a 'sweet' red, from that list, with fish?

There is NO sweet red wine on this list, and fish usually pairs with the opposite, DRY WHITE WINE.

Really baffled by this one.......

For the sweet red wine from Italy question, not on this list,

Aleatico di Puglia takes some beating. It has a lovely burned finish and dates back to Roman times.

For FRUIT, Salice Salentino Reserva - also, many Italian reds have a CHERRY kick on the taste buds. Look for Sangioveses including Chianti Riserva, Rosso di Montalcino. Italian Pinot Nero would be worth trying.

The good news for you is that you will get good fruitty reds from both the Salerno and Puglian areas, and in lower to medium price bands. Generally the higher priced Italians are sniffier "astringent" and more tannic.

Mateus is Portuguese.

On the Italian wines on the list provided, I would try the Nero d'Avola (usually Puglian and a reliable variety) and the Nipozzano - which is listed twice as if hinting which you should choose! If non-Italians are acceptable, definitely the Pinot Noirs should have fruit, though I dont know these particular brands.

Hi, I read your list and I'm agree with the other that suggested you the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Cause the tipycal flavours of this tuscan wine are sweety food, like chocolate, vanilla, red fruit jam but there are tobacco and spices too. The structure of this wine require important food like grilled beafsteak but also red meat brased. If you want a red wine to pairy with fish I suggest you Puglian red wine like "Negroamaro" or "Primitivo di Manduria" because they are without tannins. I advise you to serve them or other red wine without tannins but with good fruit flavour at cold temperature like white wine.... because the freeze softens the alcol sensations that could damage the fish flavour. This a good compromise solution to eat fish with a red wine that i learned at sommelier school.

In general, from the list you provided, go with the pinot noir for your fish pairing if no white is available.  For a "sweet" or "fruity" type of red wine that is decent try these:  The Valpoliceela has very nice fruit and will taste "sweet" but not overly so.  The "Hardy's Stamp" is a blend of Cabernet, Merlot and some Shiraz which is a bigger wine than the Pinot Noir and Valp but has the touch of sweetness you may be looking for....all of them are easy drinking and very enjoyable.  

  • Sebastiani Pinot Noir
  • Coopers Creek Pinot Noir
  • Nobile De Montepulciano Contada
  • Hardy's Stamp of Australia Cabernet Merlot
  • La Badssia Valpoliceella
