Andrew Carmellini's Risotto Rosso with Red Wine, Radicchio, and Smoked Mozzarella
This risotto is easy to make but sophisticated in flavor, with rich tannins and complexity from wine and port, a smoky note from smoked mozzarella, and a touch of bitterness from wine-glazed radicchio.
Note: Port can be replaced with 1/2 cup red wine plus 1 tablespoon sugar. Risotto should have a creamy, stew-like consistency that runs if the plate is tilted. If your risotto has reduced too far, add extra water or stock as necessary to thin before serving.
