Recioto della Valpolicella D.O.C. Classico

General Characteristics

A refined process, which starts from a winemaking and rasping of the grapes, followed by a controlled fermentation and maceration on the skins, at monitored temperature for 20 days, in small barrels. Replacements frequent and periodic delestages during the first phase of fermentation, alongside manual punching exhaustion of sugars.

Aging in wood: 36 months - Bottle aging: 12 months

Perfect pairing?

The expressive finesse of this Recioto is to try with shortbread stuffed pies of red fruit jam. The just mentioned sugars and the fatness which is fitted to make it perfect for a pecorino cheese.
