Layered Rice Pudding

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.

The nose showed wild red berries and a hint of wood. On the palate, it was balanced and juicy with red fruits and herbs. The finish showed some aggressive tannin that should integrate nicely over the course of the next year.

Winemaker Notes - This wine shows crisp, ripe red berry and cherry fruit flavors and aromas sustained by a fresh, acidic note offset by classic Sangiovese notes of earth, mushrooms and leather, with an elegant tannic backbone.

The 2008 Chianti Classico Riserva Nozzole is a dark wine loaded with super-ripe fruit, smoke, mocha, tar and licorice. This is a pretty extroverted, flashy style for the year, but it works. The tannins are firm, yet beautifully integrated, especially on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018. This is fresh and elegant, mixing cherry and berry flavors with earth and iron notes. Structured, just slightly dry on the finish. Drink now through 2015. 15,000 cases imported. -BS

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Review Online Review<br/>Rated 90<br/>Nozzole, a leading Chianti producer, turned out a wonderful Riserva in 2008. Although Chianti regulations require only 85% Sangiovese, Nozzole opts to use that grape exclusively in this Riserva. Beguiling smoky and earthy elements add a savory aspect to the expected ripe cherry-like notes of Sangiovese. An overall charming rusticity makes you come back for more. It's a fine choice for full-flavored pasta dishes or a grilled steak.<br/><br/>This wine shows crisp, ripe red berry and cherry fruit flavors and aromas sustained by a fresh, acidic note offset by classic Sangiovese notes of earth, mushrooms and leather, with an elegant tannic backbone.
