1 cup red wine
Two tbs. dry mustard
juice of 1/2 lemon

How to make Recipe Dolceforte – Dolceforte Recipe:

This recipe comes to us from the Renaissance; today, it is very seldom used. This sauce is similar to agrodolce; instead of vinegar, mustard is used, and frequently honey replaces sugar. You may add unsweetened chocolate for solid meats such as wild boar.
Melt butter in a casserole. When melted, add wine, let simmer for a few minutes, add the sugar, combine well, and add lemon juice and salt. When the sauce is reduced by one-third, add the mustard, mix well and remove from heat.
This sauce is excellent with boiled meats or venison.
