|HEALDSBURG, Calif., Dec. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Tuscan tradition calls for gathering around the table with friends and family, especially during the holidays, and no Tuscan table is complete without a bottle of Chianti to accompany the meal. This season, the Chianti experts at DaVinci® Wine are sharing recipes and pairings to help bring Chianti home to tables here in the U.S.
From Southern-Style Pulled Pork with Chianti Barbecue Sauce to Chocolate Chianti Jubilee Cake, the well-balanced DaVinci Chianti pairs beautifully with a range of menus, bringing a taste of Tuscan tradition to American tables this holiday season.
As a complement to its annual Storyteller Experience – a program designed to give creative types a once-in-a-lifetime look at the people and place behind DaVinci’s distinguished wines in the beautiful Tuscan town of Vinci – a handful of talented Storyteller alumni brought DaVinci Chianti to their holiday table, creating these inspired recipes:
With a deep crimson color and jammy flavors of ripe plums, cherries and red fruit, DaVinci Chianti has round tannins that linger in a long peppery finish. Suggested pairings also include appetizers, pastas and meat dishes.
Over the past four years, the Storyteller Experience has sent 16 creative individuals – from food bloggers to artists and photographers – to Vinci, Italy, to experience the home of Chianti and the people and the place behind the cooperative of more than 200 growers who work together to produce DaVinci wines.
