Spaghetti or Rigatoni alla Carbonara

300g Spaghetti, 3 Uova, 200g Guanciale, 100g Pecorino
seems very easy and is complicated. Do not add other ingredients. Cultureless Americans and Germans add cream!!!!

Also good with Pacheri and Martavello

...the wines

I cannot imagine this dish with white wine.  I think a robust Red is the best fit. But a Rosè with structure goes well too. The freshness contrasts nicely the strong flavours of cheese and guanciale,  but it needs structure.
