Recioto della Valpolicella Classico DOCG
Place: Sant’Urbano, Municipality Fumane 315 amsl – 45°32’35.34’’N; 10°54’03.20’’E
Corvina gentile, Corvinone, Rondinella and Molinara.
Simple pergola with an age of 50 years old.
By hand in small boxes.
The grapes are harvested by hand in the second decade of October and pressed at the end of March. Fermentation takes place in steel tanks, then the wine rests for five years first in big oak barrels and then again in steel tanks until bottling.
Intense red colour with light garnet tinges. Intense and uniquely complex aroma with hints of red fruits under spirit, sweet spices and rose petals. Sweet but not cloying flavour with an enviable aftertaste of cherry.
Sweet wine par excellence. It combines perfectly with blue-veined cheese, dried cakes, short pastries and dunking biscuits.
