Recioto has an intense ruby red color. In the scent aromas of mocha, black cherries, plums, espresso and spices. The intense fruit is nicely balanced by an underlying energy and focus. Sweet, perfumed floral notes envelop the long, mineral finish. This wine shows a beautiful inner sweetness and perfume in a medium-heavy, accessible style. A very special wine.
The grapes used in the Recioto are grown on vines that are over 20 years old and are still grown in the Pergola Veronese style. The grapes must be in perfect condition to undergo the long drying process. Fermentation is done by encouraging the natural yeasts present in the wine cellar.
The different processes are carried out in the central fermentation phase to ensure that the fermentation continues and to contribute to color extraction. Fermentation stops naturally once the balance between alcohol and residual sugar is reached. The aging in wood follows the tradition of the Valpolicella Classica area and is carried out in 25hl French oak barrels.
Recioto is only produced in the best years when the appassimento and natural fermentation procedures can reach a quality level high enough to meet the standards required by the tradition of this wine.
