RECIOTO DELLA VALPOLICELLA
Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita
In a letter to the senators of the Venetian Canonicate, Cassiodorus described Recioto as “a pure wine, of regal color and special flavor. One might define it as a fleshy liquid or as an edible beverage”. Recioto is a traditional wine of the Valpolicella area and is a direct descendant of the Retico and of the Acinatico of the Longobard era. Its preciousness derives from its maturation – in very limited quantities – using a method that is both complex and natural, without recourse to filtration.
