Tasting notes Red Wine Pago Florentino 2020:
Clean, bright cherry-coloured wine with violet tinges and hints of violet.
A multitude of differentiated nuances, intertwining ripe red fruit with aromas of roasted coffee, black fruits and roasted coffee.
Silky and pleasant on the palate, with great intensity and long-lasting; in retronasal it reminds us again of the black fruits and roasted coffee perceived in the nose.
Optimum service temperature: 17º C.
A pairing: Chateaubriand de ternera con salsa de setas.
Ingredients: 700 g beef tenderloin, 1 spring onion, 1 carrot, olive oil, salt, pepper, cognac, 50 ml crème fraîche.
- To make the sauce, cut all the trimmings we had made when squaring the piece and brown them in the same frying pan.
- Add the onion and carrot and continue browning for about ten minutes, allowing all the ingredients to brown.
- Add the brandy and let it reduce until it evaporates.
- Then add the cream and the juices released by the meat when sliced into 1.5 cm thick slices.
- Strain and bring to a final boil.
- To cook the meat, square the piece into a cylinder, cutting off the end and tying it with kitchen string. This way, when we cook it in the oven, it will cook evenly.
- Once tied, brown the chateaubriand in a frying pan with olive oil, turning it over on all sides.
- When it is golden brown, transfer it to a baking dish and cook it without any other ingredients at 180º for 20 minutes. This leaves it tender and juicy and with a very rosy appearance.
- Once the meat is roasted, cover it with aluminium foil and leave it to rest for about ten minutes to allow the juices to settle and circulate.
- We can now serve the meat with the sauce that we prepared so spectacularly.
Enjoy the meat accompanied by an exceptional wine!
