What better to serve as a dessert with a great bottle of red wine than fruit marinated in the same wine? We think nothing.
  • Strawberries:
  • 21 ounces of strawberries (separated—see directions)
  • 1/2 ounce of brandy
  • 1/2 ounce of peach schnapps
  • 1 1/2 cups of Montecillo Rioja Crianza (separated—see directions)
  • 1 1/2 cups of sugar (separated—see directions)
  • Ganache:
  • 1 cup of 35% cream
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 8 ounces of dark chocolate (ideally 70% or higher)
  • 2 tbsp of unsalted butter
  • Whipped Cream:
  • 1 cup of 35% cream
  • 2 tbsp of sugar
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  1. For the Strawberries: In a bowl, combine 7 ounces of the berries with the brandy, the schnapps, 1 cup of the wine and 2 tbsp of sugar.

  2. Set aside to marinate for a few hours. Make strawberry "tea" by mixing together and bringing to a boil 14 ounces of the strawberries with 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of the wine.

  3. Once the mixture has reached a boil, remove from heat and steep for 1 hour. Strain and reserve liquid.

  4. For the Ganache: In a pot, bring to a boil cream and sugar.

  5. In a bowl, place chocolate and butter. Once cream mixture comes to a boil, pour over chocolate and butter and whisk until smooth. Pour chocolate mix onto a tray or into a small container and let cool overnight in the refrigerator.

  6. For the Whipped Cream: To a bowl, add cream, sugar, vanilla extract. Whip until mixture stiffens, approximately 5 minutes.

  7. For Assembly: Remove chocolate ganache and whipped cream from fridge. Pour some strawberry tea into a shallow bowl. Cut chocolate ganache into any desired shape and place in the bowl. Spoon some Montecillo Rioja Crianza sangria marinated strawberries on top of chocolate ganache and top with a dollop of vanilla whipped cream.
