Fava Brothers Vineyard Zinfandel Wine
Paired with Dishes from Sonoma County Chefs!

The beauty of wine is the way it matches with food,
enhances a meal enjoyed with conversation,
and brings people together around a table.

Our Italian field blend wine, with its low alcohol,
pairs wonderfully with food and cheese.

Here is a recipe that pairs our Fava Brothers Zinfandel with cuisine from a Sonoma County chef:

Osso Buco
Paired with Marcucci Farms Zinfandel

8 veal shanks (1 inch thick)
Seasoning salt
1 cup flour
2 ounces olive oil
2 ounces butter
1 cup red wine
1 quart brown sauce or beef bouillon
1/2 bunch parsley, finely chopped
Thyme, rosemary, oregano, Worcestershire sauce, to taste
Salt, and pepper, to taste
1 carrot
1/2 leek
1 medium onion
2 tomatoes
3 stalks celery

White noodles or rice, cooked Season veal with salt and pepper or seasoning salt; coat shanks in flour and brown in oil and butter over very hot flame until golden brown: remove shanks and drain off and discard fat, leaving the sediment on bottom of pan. Add wine, brown sauce, parsley and other seasonings and bring to a boil. Cover the shanks with the sauce and braise for 1 hour and 15 minutes in a 350 degree F. oven (use bottom rack). Check doneness by piercing the meat with a sharp knife. Simmer shanks with the vegetables and return to oven for another 10 to 15 minutes. Serve over white noodles or rice. Serves 8

“This nicely balanced fruity Italian style Zinfandel lends itself to a hearty meat sauce dish, such as the Osso Buco. While fruity, the full bodied wine has a tartness that will not over power the sauce, and the full nose and elegant ruby color of the Zin only enhance the whole dining experience.”
