Vino Cotto and Chocolate Cheesecake Cupcakes

Vino Cotto and Chocolate Cheesecake Cupcakes | Le Marche and Food | Scoop.it

Vino Cotto is a typical Italian product especially in central italy and Le Marche where two small towns contend with each other the title of world capital.
Recently the Vino Cotto (or better to say Sapa) has been re-discovered in Australia as original ingredient for many recipes. Here the story:
Recently I discovered the very unusual joy of vino cotto. Not as sweet as your usual syrups of the golden, maple or chocolate variety, with a unique slight spicy, complex flavour. It’s very interesting and definitely worth trying. Vino cotto is a sweet, thin, sweet syrup made from wine/grapes. It has a slight complexity to it, as result of coming from wine. It's beautiful with prunes, on pancakes and also matched with dark chocolate in cooking."
