The recipe for risotto with Sagrantino di Montefalco
Ingredients for 4 people:
320 g of Carnaroli rice
60 g of Parmigiano Reggiano aged 36 months (finely grated)
60 g finely chopped shallots
40 g of butter
50 g of Montioni Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 liter of meat broth
- 250 ml of Montefalco Sagrantino Montioni
Procedure for risotto with Sagrantino
1) Brown the shallot in a saucepan with half the butter and the oil.
2) When it has taken on a nice golden colour, add the rice and toast it over medium heat for a few minutes, continuing to stir vigorously. Salt lightly. Slowly add the wine.
3) Finish cooking over medium heat, adding the hot broth a little at a time as it is consumed and continue stirring with a wooden risotto spoon. Season with salt.
