RECIOTO della Valpolicella DOCG, Antolini (2017) - Veneto
Grapes : Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella.
Recioto has a deep red garnet colour with purple reflections, an intense, lingering bouquet, with cherry, sour cherry, cranberry notes and a hint of violet, cinnamon and white pepper. The flavour is sweet and harmonious, never cloying, blooming and extremely fruity with a hint of red jam and cinnamon.
Food pairing : great wines to pair with desserts containing chocolate, coffee, or dried fruit such as Black Forest cake or tiramisu. But where Recioto truly stands out is with ripened cow's milk cheeses, becoming unexpectedly delicious with blue-veined cheese served with macerated fruit.
