RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
Food Pairings for Bastianich Calabrone
Merlot, Refosco, Cabernet Franc and Pignolo: Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate 90 "The 2003 Calabrone is over the top in its opulently-textured, port-like expression of the hot vintage. Although the fruit is somewhat over-ripe and raisiny, this sweet, unctuous wine could merit a higher score if the tannins soften. Made from a blend of Merlot, Refosco, Cabernet Franc and Pignolo, some of the Refosco, Cabernet Franc and Pignolo bunches are dried (Amarone-style) which gives the wine its body and depth of expression."
