Take a slice of grilled Tuscan bread, spread with a bit of this “gift from God”, let it sweat for a moment, then bite into it. A food as divine as it is simple, genuine and ingenious. Chianti butter is excellent on potatoes wrapped in foil and baked in the oven or the embers of the grill. It is great as well, in the preparation of what we call “patriotic spaghetti”. Mix some Chianti butter with fresh chili peppers, tomatoes and basil in a large bowl and toss with just-drained, piping hot spaghetti.
Chianti butter stays fresh for about 2 weeks. Sold in various sized containers.
