Piombaia Rosso di Montalcino La Crocina 750ML
As noted, lamb tends to fully take on the flavor of the sauce it's cooked with, and that's especially the case with braised lamb in heavy sauce. In fact, wine is a popular ingredient in the sauce of braised lamb, which doesn't need to complicate things. If you cook the braised lamb in a red wine sauce, simply use a full-bodied wine with earthy and peppery flavors such as?Merlot,?Cabernet Sauvignon?or Malbec to both stand up and complement the bold flavors of the sauce and dish. Fantastic wine but not a high alcohol content like you expect from a moscato.
