Azienda Tezza Recioto della Valpolicella Valpantena 2015
This stunning sweet red Recioto is perfect with cake or chocolaty desserts.
The complex dark coloured sweet Recioto della Valpolicella’s predate the really quite modern Amarone’s which are probably the result of accidentally letting the fermentation of a Recioto continue unchecked.
Like the Amarone’s the grapes, here 80% Corvino and 20% Rondinella from Valpantena the best area for Valpolicella, are picked and dried in open sided barns until the following March. The raisin like grapes are pressed and slowly fermented until the wine reaches about 13% alcohol and are still naturally sweet before aging for a year in cask and another 6 months in bottle. Serve this at room temperature to allow the deep dark cherry fruit and warm chocolaty spice notes to emerge, delicious with cake or chocolate pudding
