Recioto della Valpolicella DOCG

Recioto is a sweet red raisin wine with the DOCG denomination.  

It is mainly obtained from indigenous grapes: Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and in smaller percentages also Forselina, Negrara and Oseleta. Amarone is also made from the same grapes.

Its name derives from 'recia', ear in Venetian dialect, indicating the two lateral parts of the Corvina bunch (but also derived from the Latin Recis, bunch).

Red in colour, it is a sweet and velvety wine, complex and with very ample hints of black fruit under spirits, cocoa, liquorice and spices. Recioto della Valpolicella can be Classico, when it is produced in the sub-zone of the municipalities of Fumane, Marano, Negrar, San Pietro in Cariano or Sant'Ambrogio, the municipalities that are part of the so-called Valpolicella Classica. A further denomination is Recioto della Valpolicella Valpantena when it is produced in this valley.

It is a typical end-of-meal wine, served with dessert.
