Wrap in bacon tightly. Tie with thread, while pressing the rosemary to the meat with it. Place the rabbit tied with thread in an appropriate tray, greased with butter beforehand.
Heat the oven to 320°F (160 ºС). Roast the meat for about 35 min, while periodically pouring wine and broth over it, until fully cooked.
