Product Description

This traditional sweet dessert wine from the Valpolicella region is made from Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes, grown in select hillside vineyards. The grapes are dried for three months and after vinification, the wine is aged in oak barrels. A full-bodied red wine with rich and complex aromas and a perfect balance of alcohol and sweetness. Serve with cheese, biscuits or cakes, or as an accompaniment for fireside conversations.

Classification: Recioto della Valpolicella DOCG Classico

Origin: Masi vineyards in the communes of Marano, Negrar and Sant'Ambrogio (historic Valpolicella Classico zone). The soil has mainly red calcareous sediments with cretaceous marl.

Grape varieties: 70% Corvina, 20% Rondinella, 10% Molinara

Ageing potential: 5 years maintaining the sweet-fruity style. With longer ageing, the style changes gradually, developing mature and refined spicy aromas. After 15 to 18 years, the flavour becomes similar to that of a Port.

Recommended serving temp.: 15° C

2016 Vintage

2016 is the year when consistency and stability returned to climatic conditions, with no excesses in terms of temperature or humidity. Hot, sunny days and cool nights made for ideal ripening conditions; the grapes finished completely healthy and with sugar and acidity levels good enough to make this one of the best vintages of the last 50 years. The harvest began in mid-September. Very good aromatic and polyphenolic concentrations in the grapes laid down to dry for the appassimento.

Tasting notes: Deep opaque red in the glass with dense viscosity. Attractive aromas of ripe cherries on the nose and sweet hints of jamminess combined with touches of cinnamon and cloves. Tightly structured on the palate, making the firm tannins very attractive. Never excessively sweet in taste thanks to good supporting acidity. Gorgeous, long, ripe-cherry finish.

Food pairings: Recioto is a great after-dinner wine. Perfect with fruit desserts, shortbread and panettone. Also excellent with gorgonzola and other blue cheeses.
