As for Amarone, selected grapes are harvested by hand and placed in small crates for drying in accordance with the traditional, natural system without any forcing. Fermentation in wood vats begins spontaneously thanks to the natural presence of native yeasts. Tannin extract, sugars, low temperatures and the surrounding environment – such as the small 1.18 hl oak vats where the wine still undergoing fermentation is left to rest – influence fermentation trends themselves so that they are slow and complex through to natural and independent completion, thereby leaving the characteristic residual sugar that clearly identifies the wine.
Full-bodied, intense and complex perfumes are especially matched by never-excessive sweetness.
Balances sweetness, concentration, and density with shape, freshness, and flair. A rich and stylish example of Recioto.
