Story of the wine:
Recioto is a distinctive style of wine and an historic speciality of the region of Veneto. Originally produced from the ripest grapes which were on the outside of the bunches or 'ears' and for which the Italian word is "orecchio", hence recioto. Recioto is a full flavoured sweetish red wine, whilst.
Grape(s): 70% Corvina, 20% Rondinella, 5% Sangiovese, 5% Others.
Area: San Floriano in the centre of the Classico region of Valpolicella. For the Recioto the grapes come from the highest part of the vineyard.
This is a classic Veronese wine made by the traditional method of drying the grapes to give it added richness. Made by Brigaldara, who is considered one of the best producers in the region, from his small hillside estate. A full-bodied, muscular red, mainly sweet in the middle and a touch of dryness on the finish.
