Recioto della Valpolicella Classico DOC Price €50.80
Sensorial features: Deep ruby red in colour, a highly concentrated wine, with perfumes of dried fruits on the nose and a round, full and velvety palate. Sweet, but not cloying, with good intensity of dark, almost fruit cake flavours and remarkable power. Excellent length, with perfumes of spiced, dried cherries on the finish.
Traditionally this wine has been enjoyed with dry desserts, such as shortbread, cantucci (dry almond cookies), sbrisolona (a local crumb cake), however it also pairs well with dark chocolate soft cakes. Try it with strawberries and tropical fruits as well. Thanks to its outstanding roundness, it perfectly enhances some cheeses, especially a mild Gorgonzola. Serve at 14°C (57°F) and open the bottle an hour before consuming
