The predecessor of Amarone, Recioto is the appellation’s signature dessert wine produced using a similar method. Flavors of raisined fruit, particularly cherries, are highly concentrated. Vanilla notes add structure to this powerful, rich red. The tannins are ripe and sweet rounding out the finish. Dried clusters are vinified in stainless steel and aged 18 months in French oak barrels. Unlike its predecessor, Recioto’s fermentation is halted, thus allowing it to retain a higher concentration of residual sugar.
