Ossobuco (Bone with a Hole) is Braised Veal Shank with a hollow bone full of delicious marrow.

The meat is braised in a tomato-based sauce until it is tender and falling off the bone.

Ossobuco or Osso Buco recipe is from Lombardia and locally served with Risotto alla Milanese, while in Veneto it is served with Polenta.

Braised melt-in-your-mouth bites of caramelized meat with the fattiness of marrow bone tames tannins and the list of red wines above is a super-tannic one.

Veal Osso Buco tastes more delicate than Beef Osso Buco and therefore the wine choice goes towards a lighter Amarone or even Barbera, Dolcetto, Chianti Classico and Pinot Nero.
