Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

I found the 2000 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva more or less at the same level as the 2001 regular bottling, grapier and perhaps a bit more straightforward in aroma and flavor despite an additional year of age, the texture a bit more round but ...

Winemaker's Notes:

Fonterutoli's flagship wine and is the most representative of the estate's production. This wine's deep roots in the territory represents a point of reference for the whole of Chianti Classico. Very concentrated ruby-purple in color. Complex notes of elegant fruit along with the vanilla and toasty oak. The power and controlled elegance of Sangiovese, an enviable freshness and a natural balance and harmony.
