Crab, Pasta and Cheese Gratin
Mild cheeses marry better with white wines than red wines because of their delicate flavors and the creaminess in both the wine and the food. Add the resonance of sweet crab, and a lush Chardonnay is the obvious choice; but other fruity, rich white wines also work well with this classic comfort food. Dependable: full, fruity Chardonnay. Daring: fresh, light Dolcetto.
