Legendary Dishes | Peposa di Daino (vension in Roman-style aromatic red wine sauce)

ITALY

This Roman sauce – made with berries, herbs, spices and red wine – never lost favour, because it masked the smell of meat that was left to hang for too long. Nowadays it is a luxury, yet easily made. This is the light version, for the heavy version go to Salsa Peposa.

  • 1 kg venison
  • 750 ml Montepulciano D’Abruzzo red wine
  • 500 g red onions, sliced
  • 50 g black peppercorns
  • 30 g flour
  • 25 g lovage leaves and stalks
  • 25 g rosemary twigs
  • 20 g cassia bark
  • 20 g juniper berries
  • 10 bay leaves

Place vension into a large deep pot with the bay leaves, onions, peppercorns and wine, simmer over a very low heat for 24 hours. Strain liquid, make a gravy with the flour. Serve meat with the gravy and mashed potatoes.
