Fiorato

Recioto della Valpolicella

This extraordinary Recioto is produced from grapes grown on a tiny terraced plot named Fiorato, where Tommasi has some of its highest and oldest vines. The vines are the result of a rigorous clonal selection and are severely pruned so as to yield less than half of what they would normally be able to produce. The grapes (a blend of 65% Corvina, 30% Rondinella and 5% Molinara) are dried for 5 months prior to pressing, and then see 1 year in tonneau  barrels of 5 hectoliters. Warm, sweet and intense on thepalate, with hints of prune and an extremely velvety texture. Ideal with seasoned cheeses and dry cakes (such as fig) and biscuits.
