Wine Recommendations: This dish boasts delicate aromatic tones from the saffron, backed by sweet notes from the rice, and a thick, creamy mouthfeel. There’s also the unctuous feel of the sausage, olive oil and melted cheese that suggests a pairing with a young red wine. We found two romantically-themed Syrahs that could fit the bit. The first is Fabrizio Dionisio 2007 Podere il Castagno Syrah from the Cortona area of Tuscany, with fresh berry layers and a rich feel in the mouth. The Chocolate Box 2007 Dark Chocolate Shiraz from the Barossa Valley offers similar characteristics.
