Wine obtained from the drying of Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Croatina grapes, from our best and oldest vines of 50 years of age. Recioto is therefore a unique wine, produced in limited quantities. The grapes are picked by hand in early October and then left to dry in crates until March, resulting in significant weight loss. This makes it possible to naturally concentrate the intrinsic elements of the grapes and therefore the intensity of Recioto's taste. 
Color: Intense ruby ​​red.
Aroma: Recioto has great intensity and elegance, with a clean bouquet of marmalade, fruit in alcohol, cherry, plum, wild berries, with a final touch of balsamic herbs.
