Fontana Dolce Reserve – Raspberry Sorbet

ingredients

  • 3/4 cup (150 g) sugar
  • 3/4 cup (180 ml) water
  • 1 bottle (750 ml) fruity red wine, Fontana Dolce Reserve
  • 3 cups (15 ounces/400 g) raspberries

preparation

In a medium saucepan, bring the sugar, water, and red wine to a boil and let boil for 1 minute, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Remove from the heat and add the raspberries. Cover and let steep for 1 hour.

To purée the berries and remove the seeds, using a rubber spatula, press the mixture through a mesh strainer set over a medium bowl or pass it through a food mill fitted with a fine disk into a medium bowl. Cover and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.

Freeze in an ice cream machine according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Variation:
For a lighter-tasting sorbet, use Fontana rosé in place of the Dolce.

tip:You can use frozen raspberries in this recipe. There’s no need to thaw the berries before adding them to the warm wine.
