Q&A: What is the name of italian red wine cookies?

Question by Kendall M: What is the name of italian red wine cookies?
Every Christmas my grandmother (her parents were northern Italian) makes these amazing cookies. It’s a pretty simple recipe with red wine, olive oil, flour and sugar. The dough barely sticks together and they get rolled into little wreaths/loops and then dipped in a mixture of cinnamon and sugar before they’re baked. They come out as slightly sweet, winey, hard, crumbly cookies. We just call them Nana’s wine cookies for now, but curious to know what they are really called.
It’s not the name of the wine I’m looking for (usually use whatever we want to drink that night). Both the recipes sound like tasty alternatives. I was hoping for a name of the cookies though. Something like “anelli di vino” if I had to completely make something up.

(since you have red wine – Biscotti al Vino Rosso)

It’s probably a dry red wine… Chianti, Valpolicella..(see below describing Italian wines.)
For non-Italian wines, a Burgandy or a Red Table wine… whatever you like, to be honest.

Recipe from link below: (since you have red wine – Biscotti al Vino Rosso)
Wine Cookies, or Biscotti al Vino
The holidays (or having friends for dinner) bring all sorts of leftovers, including half-empty bottles of wine. This is a surprisingly tasty way of dealing with said leftover wine, and your kids, or office-mates if you take these cookies to work, will loudly demand more. An excuse to open a second bottle!
INGREDIENTS:
1 cup (250 ml) wine of any kind
1 cup (250 ml) vegetable oil
1 cup (220 g) sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
5 cups (500 g) flour
A pinch of salt
More sugar for rolling the cookies in
PREPARATION:
Work all the ingredients to gether, until you obtain a dough that’s firm but fairly soft, rather like pizza dough. Roll it into snakes that you can shape into rings or S shapes, or into balls that you can flatten with the palm of your hand.

Dredge the cookies in granulated sugar, put them on a lightly greased cookie sheet, and bake them in a 360 F (180 C) oven for 20 minutes. Cool them on a rack, and prepare to be asked for more.

Types of Italian Wine:
Chianti
If one is looking for a nice, dry red wine from the Italian region, Chianti may just be the perfect choice. This medium-bodied wine is made from the Sangiovese grapes and comes largely from the Tuscany area. Chianti goes perfectly with red meats, pasta and shellfish as well as certain types of poultry dishes.

Valpolicella
Another medium-bodied red Italian wine is Valpolicella. This type of wine due to its dry characteristics and medium body will go best with flavorful, heavy varieties of food. Valpolicella is an extremely popular Italian red wine, coming in right behind Chianti with regard to being a highly favored wine.

Amarone
For those individuals who prefer a less dry red Italian wine, the Amarone variety might be the perfect wine to try. Although Amarone is somewhat dry it has a variety of flavor combinations which give it a sweet taste. This is paired nicely with various cheeses and foods which are full in flavor.

Montepulciano d’Abruzzo
This type of Italian red wine is medium-bodied yet fruity in flavor. The tone of the wine will depend on the specific producer as Montepulciano d’Abruzzo wines can be drier or less dry depending on the vineyard. This is a type of red wine that can go with a wide variety of meals and food genres.

Lambrusco
If a wine drinker is looking to pour a glass of red Italian wine that is a bit different in nature, Lambrusco is the way to go. This wonderful red has a slight fizz to it and is not as dry as some of its red wine counterparts such as Chianti or Valpolicella. Lambrusco is a medium-bodied wine which is fruity in nature. The consistency of the Lambrusco makes it a wine that is easy to drink and unique in and of itself.
