Sartori Rerum Recioto della Valpolicella Classico DOC 2018
Sartori Rerum Recioto della Valpolicella has a lush, dark ruby. Its bouquet eludes fine cherry and blackberry jam aromas, against a subtle vanilla background. The palate offers ample black cherry flavours, supported by sweet tannins. The berry notes complement the slight sweetness of the wine, which is well-integrated with the tannins and slight acidity. It is well-structured and smooth upon entry, and finishes with a long and decadent balance. Decant the bottle before the meal, and enjoy it along with your dessert. A sweet finish to your meal.
This blend has a composition of 50% Corvina Veronese, 30% Corvinone, 15% Rondinella and 5% Carbernet. The grapes are taken from selected vineyards situated in the hills of the Classico area in the Northern part of Verona. The soil composition is mainly made up of clay and calcareous soil.
The grapes are carefully selected and place in small crates and dried in ventilated rooms for about 4 – 5 months. They are then pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks. The extremely slow fermentation lasts until late spring, giving the wine a pleasant sweetness. It is then refined in large oak casks for 6 months
