Recioto di Soave DOCG
Made from hillside vineyards in Soave where, over the years, we have recognised grapes from these parcels as being particularly suitable for drying after harvest, thanks to the vineyard’s exposure, the age of the vines and the low productivity per vine.
The grapes of Garganega are selected from pergola vineyards that are up to 40 years old and produce excellent quality grapes. We select between 7% and 50% (rarely) of the grapes from the vines, usually around a third of the total product. The grapes are dried in wooden boxes in the “ fruttaio” of Costeggiola for between three and five months, depending on the vintage. We recommend this dessert wine served chilled (12-14° C or 54-57° F) with desserts such as lemon meringue, sponge cakes or short crust pastry.
Ageing potential: 10 years or more if correctly cellared
