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 appellations, from Valpolicella to Amarone.
The wine making process of the Recioto della Valpolicella is similar to the Amarone’s, with the grapes left to dry anywhere between 100 and 200 days, until they reach the necessary amount of sugar content and then vinified.
This Recioto della Valpolicella, made using only the best, hand picked, organically grown grapes. The grapes, once harvested are put in small boxes to avoid damaging them, and left to dry. Once the grapes reach the required sugar content, they are vinified and aged in wood for 12 months, then another 12 months on temperature controlled tanks on its own lees, and finally 12 months in bottle.
The result is an unctuous organic 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.
The Recioto della Valpolicella find its perfect match in chocolate based desserts or as meditation wine. It also pairs fresh or little aged cheeses.
