Recioto della Valpolicella Valpantena DOCG
Considered the forerunner of Amarone, its name derives from ‘recia’ which means ‘ear’ in Veneto, to indicate the upper part of the bunch of Corvina, from which the riper, more concentrated berries were selected and then partially dried by being hung on picai, taut twines, until a sweet wine was obtained. The resulting wine is sumptuous, full, raisined wine with an ancient lineage.

At the end of December, the grapes that have stayed longer in the drying loft are destemmed, selected on the sorting table and then crushed. Alcoholic fermentation is carried out up to the desired alcohol content, with various daily pumping-over operations to ensure the must stays in contact with the skins. This is followed by racking, static decanting of the wine obtained and ageing.
