DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat an oven to 325°F.
  • Using a chef’s knife, very finely chop together the garlic, rosemary and sage. Transfer to a small bowl, add the fennel seeds, season with salt and pepper, and mix well. Make slits 1/2 inch deep all over the pork roast and insert some of the mixture into each slit. Rub the roast with the remaining seasoning, then rub with 2 Tbs. of the olive oil. Place the meat in a roasting pan just large enough to hold it.
  • Transfer the pan to the oven and roast the meat for 1 hour. In a bowl, toss the onion slices with the remaining 2 Tbs. olive oil and scatter them around the meat. Continue to roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the roast, away from the bone, registers 150°F, or the meat is pale pink when cut into at the center, about 1 1/4 hours more. Transfer the roast to a carving board, cover loosely with aluminum foil and let rest for 15 minutes before carving.
  • Meanwhile, pour off most of the fat in the roasting pan and place the pan over medium-low heat. Add the wine and deglaze the pan, stirring to scrape up any browned bits from the pan bottom. Simmer until the sauce is slightly reduced.
  • Carve the roast and arrange on a warmed platter. Spoon the pan sauce over the pork and serve immediately.
