Wow! I made this for my family's Christmas Dinner and it was amazingly good. Great rich flavor without being too sweet and the glaze really balanced the saltiness of the ham just right. I used Chianti for the wine and recommend it. Chianti is the tradition wine for Sangria and has a very fruity flavor itself. I used the pineapple juice and added some grated ginger and orange zest (although I'm not sure the addition of the ginger and zest changed the outcome much.) I did the 400 degrees for 20 minutes, then turned down the oven to 325 for another two hours. I brought the ham interior temp to 140 degrees per the cooking instructions on the ham and it was perfect (it was a fully cooked Martha Stewart bone-in ham from Costco. Almost half the price of the one at the grocery store and I loved it. I would recommend this ham, nothing tasted bargain about it.) I did tent it for the last 45 minutes. When it came out of the oven it looked right out of a magazine, I was very proud to serve this ham to my family. Also, as other reviewers I took the juices from the roasting pan and reduced and served as a sauce. Only thing I would have done different is to skim the reduction before serving. Enjoy!
