Vino Cotto Newsletter – Autumn 2014


IL Baronello Vino Cotto      Recipes       About Us       Autumn 2014   


We’ve just had that special time of the year when we successfully completed another years work of Vino Cotto production.  It’s such a rewarding experience.
Our grapes were of amazing quality and flavour, courtesy of the warmer season and vineyard management.  We pressed loads of grapes using our new press which worked like a charm.  
We are delighted at what the young 2014 Vino Cotto promises to offer when it is bottled in 12 months time.  It should be a cracker!
In the end it’s all about balance – perfectly matured grapes and gently pressed, slowly cooked must and time given to the Vino Cotto to mature with a delicate sweetness and lovely lingering fragrance.
Happy Easter.

Hot Cross Buns with Vino Cotto soaked fruit  Serves 20

Warm Apple Polenta Cake with Honey and Vino Cotto Syrup There is nothing like the aroma of hot cross buns baking in your oven to help celebrate Good Friday morning breakfast. These little pleasures are moist and dense and the Vino Cotto soaked fruit infuses the buns with a lovely fragrance and flavour that the whole family will enjoy. Finish off the buns with a sugar glaze to give them a high-gloss and sticky finish.  Read more.

Caramelised Onions with a splash of Vino Cotto   Serves 4

Hazelnut and Fig Vino Cotto Bread I’m sure we can all agree that caramelised onions can turn a simple dish into something deliciously gourmet.  These tender, sweet and yet savoury flavour onions can be used in so many ways. From pizza topping, layered on burgers, added to roast pumpkin salads with fetta, in braised dishes, on BBQ steaks or in soups.
Adding a slash of Vino Cotto to deglaze the pan, helps lift the sticky fonds giving the onions an even richer and delicious flavour.  Read more
