Recioto della Valpolicella DOCG Classico by Domini Veneti
The Recioto della Valpolicella Classico DOCG by Domini Veneti is not just a delicious wine, it is also steeped in history and produced with meticulous attention to detail. Dating back to Roman times, this wine is a symbol of winemaking in the Valpolicella Classica area, where only the ripest grapes are naturally dried to produce this exquisite beverage. This traditional process of drying the grapes, known as “fruttaio,” is used for 100/120 days before the grapes are crushed and de-stemmed in mid-January. The wine is then fermented at temperatures ranging from 12 to 23 °C, left to macerate for 20 days, and undergoes complete malolactic fermentation.
The wine is then aged in wood and then in bottles, where it is naturally stabilized without the use of any additives or chemicals. The result is a wine that truly embodies the essence of the Valpolicella region, with its intense fruity flavors, hints of vanilla and spice, and velvety texture. The ruby-red color of Recioto della Valpolicella Classico DOCG is just the beginning of its appeal. Its soft, creamy texture and unique sweetness make it a standout among Italian wines. It’s the perfect accompaniment to dry and chocolate desserts, and its interesting flavor profile also pairs well with blue and spicy cheeses with spiced sauces.
