A seriously pokey chilli would be better served with designer beer but providing the heat is not too over-powering (it always seems to be a little less assertive the following day), fruity, full-blooded reds are the order of the day. Look to Australia or South America for rich, ripe cabernet-merlots, or try some of Chile’s new opulent carmenères. Closer to home, Rioja’s neighbour Navarra is a good source of ripe, fruity wines with the requisite gusto!
