Because the grapes are dried for several months before fermentation the sweetness and intense aromas of this Recioto Della Valpolicella are entirely natural which concentrates their sugars and flavours. Sweet to begin with this wine blossoms into a mouthful of Morello cherries with the nicely judged acidity freshening the finish.
Recioto’s notes of cocoa, sweet berries and orange are a perfect complement to the finest quality dark chocolate.
Compared with a Port, no spirit is added to stop the fermentation giving a lower alcohol level and a sweetness that is finely balanced with the refreshing acidity and the persistent but elegant fruit flavours.
