Porcini & Cacao Risotto - Recipe of the Month

When long time Amici Primo Andrew and Justin Lind told us they'd found the perfect match for our JOSEPH Nebbiolo we knew they were serious as they not only sent us the recipe but also included a block of the heavenly Willie's Cacao for us to use! General Manager Richard cooked up a batch for the team one lunchtime and the empty plates and Nebbiolo bottle showed that Andrew and Justine were on to a winner.

This recipe is kindly provided by Willie's Cacao, but we warn you to be very careful clicking on the link, their products are addictively delicious!

The Tuscan Flies High In Qantas Magazine

Peter Bourne has selected our 2010 Primo & Co The Tuscan Shiraz Sangiovese for his feature on flying winemakers in this month's issue of Qantas inflight magazine The Australian Way.

In this 'tale of two hemispheres' Peter describes The Tuscan's 'generous spiced plum and fresh tobacco aromas set in a frame of mild-mannered tannins'. It is a really interesting look at flying winemakers and their influence on wine both here and overseas, check out the full article.

JOSEPH Sparkling Red 'Head and shoulders above the rest'

Louise Radman writes in SA Weekend magazine,

'Nothing beats the opulent black forest-inspired combination of dark chocolate and cherry. With robust character and cocoa flavours of its own, the iconic Australian sparkling red is a classic match to complement any chocolaty treat. This indulgent cuvee from JOSEPH stands head and shoulders above the rest. It's a rich and sumptuous wine with soft bubbles and a brooding core of black cherry and satsuma plum, cracked pepper and chocolate bullet notes. The opulent blend of museum vintages has savoury sweetness and serious layers of complexity to offset bittersweet dark chocolate tones.'

We think Louise is on to a winner with her chocolate pairing but for those seeking a savoury match for this wine we love it paired with Dina Grilli's Umbrian Pate.
