Siena Sorbet

Serve this delicious, light refreshing dessert after dinner or lunch, with fresh blackberries or raspberries, and with an Italian Biscotti cookie for dipping.


1-1/4 cup Siena wine
1-1/4 cup water
1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp powdered sugar
2 cinnamon sticks
4 cloves, whole


In saucepan, add wine, water, sugar, cinnamon and cloves and bring to a boil. Remove from heat, cover and let steep for 1 hour.
