We’ve long relied on our friend Anthony Giglio for advice on wine-and-food pairings. Here are a handful of Anthony’s “Pasqua Picks” to pour with any roast on Easter, chosen with help from his friends at Super Buy Rite Wines & Liquor in his hometown of Jersey City, New Jersey.

Au Bon Climat Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir, Central Coast, California 2013 ($17) A classic medium-bodied Central Coast Pinot with Burgundian pedigree.

Domaine du Raifault Chinon Cuvee Tradition, Loire, France 2012 ($18) Cabernet Franc from the Loire is spicy, aromatic and delicious with any meat.

Achaval Ferrer Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina 2012 ($19) A lovely Malbec with enough body to stand up to charred meats, plus ample fruit.

Orin Swift Locations Wine F Red, France ($15) An ambitious, delicious blend of Grenache from Roussillon, Syrah from the Rhone, and a dash of Bordeaux varieties.

Seghesio Family Vineyards Zinfandel, Sonoma County, California 2013 ($20) A fruity, spicy Zin like this is always on my table to play foil to sweet sauces and glazes.
