Radicchio, Tomato, Mushroom and Cheese Bruschetta

Ingredients

2 Lg.  Tomatoes – seeded and cut into small diced pieces
2 Cups  Crimini Mushrooms – diced fairly small
3 Tbl. Parsley – Italian, flat and chopped coarsely
3 Tbl. Cheese – goat (Soft cheese work best here)
4 Slices  Italian Country bread – about 3/4 inch thick
12-15  Leaves Radicchio – sliced into 3 inch wide pieces
Q.B. Tbl. Extra virgin olive oil

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Put the tomatoes, mushrooms, parsley and cheese into a small bowl and add 3 tablespoons of olive oil.  Mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste.  Set aside. Once the oven reaches temperature, toast Radicchio di Trevisothe bread on both sides until each slice is browned a bit.  Let cool.  peel a clove of garlic, and rub it over both sides of each piece of bread.  (If garlic is not a favorite flavor, simply eliminate it or rub the garlic over one side of the bread.)   Pour enough olive oil on each piece of bread to coat one side lightly.  Place 3-4 pieces of radicchio on each slice and put the the bread and radicchio back in the oven.  Leave in the oven until the radicchio begins to blacken – about 5 minutes. When the bread is ready, remove from the oven and place the slices on a serving dish.  Heap the tomato, mushroom, goat cheese and parsley mixture on each piece.  Serve immediately

NOTE:  If preferred, as an alternative to toasting the bread in the oven, it may be easier to grill it on the stove top, or in a Panini maker.   Heat the griddle or Panini maker to toasting temperature. Grill the bread on each side until done to your liking.  Let cool then proceed as directed above. For those who wonder what Q.B. in the recipe means, it means “Quanto Basto” or however much you like. (Loosely translated from the Italian ) Try this bruschetta with our very mellow 2009 Syrah.

2009 Syrah

2009syrah

This De Angelis Wine was bottled in mid-February of 2011. A limited release occurred in August 2011 after a lengthy bottle aging period. We decided to do a full release to the general public some months later. This is a 13.9% alcohol wine that brings flavor, balance, complexity and finish to this wine. Some of the complexity is due to blending a small amount (10.5%) of Grenache with the Syrah months prior to bottling. This blend has been offered in our Syrah since being originally introduced into our Syrahs in 2007. We are very proud of this wine. Of note is the fact that this wine ages very well, and has now become the Syrah of choice in fine restaurants and food establishments.

Also pair this with any beef, lamb or veal dish, as well as with other flavorful  dishes, especially those made with mushrooms, or truffles.
