Bring to boil; reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 2 hours, stirring occasionally. Strain, discarding solids in strainer. Return broth to saucepan. Boil over medium-high heat until reduced to 1 1/2 cups, about 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. DO AHEAD: Can be made 2 days ahead. Cover and chill. Rewarm before using, whisking to blend.

Pour 1/4 cup warm parmesan broth around risotto in each bowl and serve.
|a White wine : a DO Penedes - Loxarel Cora-Muscat/Chardonnay- 2005 - The acidity and the alcohol are well-balanced. Its aftertaste is persistent and with fruit notes. Flowery, roses and honeysucklem with aromas that remind us of Muscat grapes. Dry fruit appears, represented by hazelnut.
The fresh grape aromas entertain a nice pasta, risotto or paella dish
