Greek God of beauty
with a timeless sweetness
Production | 2.000 bottles only made in the best vintages.
Tipology | Red sweet dessert wine.
Grapes | Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Oseleta, Croatina, only hand selected grapes of the property Cru Monte La Parte.
Harvest | Manual, in late September.
Soil | Calcareus, tufaceus, meager and rich in skeleton.
Wine making | The mature grapes are selected and laid one by one, in small crates of 4/5 kg. The grapes are then left in fruttaio (drying room) longer than four months in order to obtain a weight loss up to 50%. The vinification takes place in stainless steel tanks with daily pump over. The spontaneous fermentation can last up to three months and is stopped naturally.
Aging | The wine refines in 5hl French oak barrels for at least 5 years and it’s bottled without previous filtration.
Recioto also rests at least 1 year in bottle before the sale. The total winemaking takes 7 years.
Food pairings | Full body sweet wine. Perfect match with dry pastries like the crumbly sbrisolona, bittersweet chocolate or the Christmas cake Panettone. Fine taster will also find a perfect combination with local goat cheese made in Lessinia or blue cheese like Gorgonzola DOP. Often recommended as meditation wine.
