Starter kit - http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/Visual-Studio-3D-Starter-455a15f1

If you want more control (and don't want to rely on the starter kit), I'd recommend starting with the DirectX template that comes with Visual Studio 2012. There are also a plethora of talks on channel9.msdn.com from the //Build conference this year and last year that you can check out to learn more.
