Region: Veneto, Italy
Tommasi Fiorato Recioto della Valpolicella 2018 (37.5cl)
65% Corvina, 30% Rondinella and 5% Molinara
A long standing speciality of the Veneto. Like Amarone the backbone comes from Corvina grapes which are dried after harvest to concentrate them before pressing & fermentation. With sweet & intense aromas there’s a real warmth to this alongside the candied, dried fruit flavours.
A deep and intense ruby red in color, it is very elegant and complex with its rich notes of fruit preserved in alcohol: cherry is at the forefront, accompanied by hints of vanilla and sweet spices. On the palate it is broad and harmonious, with well-balanced sweetness and a persistent finish.
Excellent at the end of a meal, with desserts and dry pastries; it is ideal for serving with dishes based on berry fruits or dark chocolate: Perfect with blue cheeses. Extraordinary alone, as a meditation wine.
