“Francesca Finato Spinosa” Recioto Valpolicella Classico DOCG

A wine which is able to combine sweetness and character: virtuous qualities that, according to my Grandmother, to whom this Recioto is dedicated, even men should have.

Vintage: 2013

Ask winemaker

This is Recioto made like in the old days, when Recioto meant Valpolicella. It is moderately sweet, elegant and balanced, with scents of morena cherry and spices. This is wine for the heart, it puts us in a good mood, makes us feel younger and tastes like celebration. It is a wine that combines sweetness and character: virtuous qualities that my Grandmother, to whom this wine is dedicated, used to say men should possess too.
