Why we love it
The Recioto della Valpolicella is the traditional dessert wine of the Valpolicella region, made using the same grapes allowed in the other wines of the appellations.
This Recioto della Valpolicella is made using only the best, hand picked, organically grown grapes. The grapes, once harvested, are put in small boxes to avoid being damaged and left to dry anywhere between 100 and 200 days, until they reach the necessary amount of sugar content. Once the required sugar content is reached, the grapes are pressed and the wine is aged in wood for at least 12 months, then another 12 months on temperature controlled tanks on its own lees to add complexity and structure, and finally 12 months in bottle before being released.
The result is a delicious Recioto della Valpolicella with a complex nose, with cherry and red fruit notes, a warm palate, sweet and with a pleasant acidity and smooth tannins, perfectly balanced.
The Recioto della Valpolicella find its perfect match in chocolate based desserts or as meditation wine. It also pairs fresh or little aged cheeses.
