Tassel Ridge® Tomato and Mozzarella Bruschetta

4 Roma tomatoes, cored and slivered
8 oz fresh mozzarella, cubed
1 cup julienned fresh basil
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
3 Tbsp olive oil
1 baguette, sliced into rounds

Combine tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, garlic, and oil in bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Heat baguette rounds in toaster oven or under broiler until golden. Cool. Top each round with a spoonful of tomato mixture. Serves 8.

Wine Recommendation: Tassel Ridge Iowa In the Dark

Because tomatoes are featured in this bruschetta recipe, a light dry red wine with good acid will offer the best pairing. My choice is Tassel Ridge Iowa In the Dark which is a dry, light red wine with strawberry notes and toasty oak on the nose and palate followed by hints of caramel on the finish. A blend of Marquette, St. Croix, and Frontenac grapes grown in our Mahaska County, Iowa, vineyards, Iowa In the Dark also complements lightly seasoned meat. Serve at room temperature.—Bob Wersen, Owner, Tassel Ridge Winery
