Tenuta Santa Maria - Recioto della Valpolicella Classico 2020

IN STOCK

This Recioto is made by using Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella grapes, which are hand picked at the beginning of September and laid out to dry on the traditional ‘arelle’ for a delicate drying from one hundred and forty to one hundred and fifty days. During this time, in addition to the increase in sugar content, an interesting organic evolution takes place which leads to the development of the typical dried grape aromas in addition to those of the fresh grapes. This is followed by a soft pressing and a long maceration and fermentation in stainless steel which is completed in thirty days on average. The aging takes place in French oak barriques which give it an immediately recognizable character of great balance, complexity and elegance.

The wine has a ruby red colour with garnet reflections. The sweet aromas of blackberry, blueberry and black cherry with notes of undergrowth and wet earth complete the picture. On the palate it manages to combine its full and opulent nature with a pleasant and balanced sweetness. A long finish of delicious floral and spicy notes and a velvety and elegant tannin.

A great wine to pair with: cheese and charcuterie, oysters, ceviche or rustic pasta dishes.
