Acinatico Recioto

Sweet Red Wine

75% Corvina Veronese

20% Rondinella

5% Molinara

The best grapes are selected, placed in 6kg crates, and left to rest for over 120 days. During the drying of the grapes, a series of biochemical and evolutionary processes, including Botritis Nobile, transform part of the sugars in to glycerin. After crushing, fermentation begins and then it is stopped at the appropriate time by removing the yeasts, thus obtaining a sweet wine. The sweetness of Recioto della Valpolicella is due to the non-total transformation of sugars, present in grapes, into alcohol. The wine obtained is refined for several months in oak barrels, thus maturing aromatic complexity and softness. 

The color is intense ruby red and the perfume is characteristic of dried fruit with hints of violet. The taste is delicate with soft tannins. 

It's natural sweetness and the presence of soft tannins classify it as a dessert wine.
