Recioto

Red, Sweet, DOCG. I give you…

Recioto della Valpolicella

Recioto takes its name from racemes, the minute bunches known as “recie” that grow on the sides of the bunch, like ears.

 

Recioto della Valpolicella is a sweet, red DOCG wine produced exclusively from native vines such as Corvina, Corvinone (up to a maximum of 50% in replacement of Corvina) and Rondinella, but also with smaller percentages of Cruina, Forselina, Negrara and Oseleta, and sometimes Molinara. These are the same grapes that are used for the production of Amarone.

 

It has a deep red colour, an accentuated aroma and a full, delicate and sweet taste. In a word: a real treat.

The Vineyards of Moron

RECIOTO DELLA VALPOLICELLA DOCG CLASSICO VIGNETI DI MORON

The micro-area known as Moron and located in the Negrar valley is like few others thanks to its vocation for great wines, particularly Recioto.

 

Its sweetness has led it to be enjoyed as a dessert wine for many, many years. But let us tell you a secret: it is an austere and important wine. This means that you will make an excellent impression if you offer it together with blue cheeses. Let yourself be amazed: this Recioto knows how to best express itself, with a good softness and splendid density.

The oldest and most legendary

RECIOTO DELLA VALPOLICELLA DOCG CLASSICO

The history of this wine is ancient, as it dates back to Roman times and the famous Rhaetian wine which was highly praised and appreciated by the Latin poets.

 

It is a symbol of the winemaking in the Valpolicella Classica area, which is based on the particular process of naturally drying only the ripest grapes, and is considered the origin of Amarone. Ruby-red in colour, it is sweet, soft and creamy, a unique red wine in the Italian wine panorama.

 

At the table? A delight with all dry and chocolate desserts. Interesting with blue and spicy cheeses with spiced sauces.
