Strawberries in Red Wine

Strawberries in Red Wine

This is a very simple, but quite wonderful dessert, best made with sweet, ripe, fragrant berries, which complements the tannins of red wine. Let the strawberries macerate in wine for up to 1 hour, but no more or they’ll be unpleasantly soggy. (It’s fine to prepare and sugar them in advance.)
