In this chapter we present a dessert wine that marries every kind of sweet, velvety and delicate like few others, the Recioto from Valpolicella.

The Recioto from Valpolicella is a sweet raisin red wine among the most celebrated nationally, a prestigious and characteristic wine, appreciated all over the world. It fits right into the Olympus of Italian wines, thanks to the DOCG (Controlled and Guaranteed Denomination of Origin) mark, which testifies to the undisputed quality and great value of this wine.

It is produced exclusively in Valpolicella, a territory located north of the province of Verona, between Lake Garda and the province of Vicenza. Among these green and wild hills, native vines are grown, such as Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella, that is, the same grapes that are used for the other production of Valpolicella wines.

In fact, this noble wine has the same production process as Amarone, unlike it is in the final part of the processing, where the fermentation of the sugars that turn into alcohol is interrupted, thus obtaining the sweet wine that we all know.

In the most historical labels we still find the words "Recioto Amarone della Valpolicella". The fundamental step for making this wine is after the harvest, when the best grapes are placed in the fruit rooms for about 100/120 days where, in these ventilated rooms between the hills and away from the mists, the drying of the bunch occurs and the consequent increase in sugar content and extracts.

Here then the term Recioto, from the dialect "recia", which means ear, in fact this name indicates the lateral bunches that crown the main bunch and that in the past was considered as the best part and therefore the only one that could aspire to withering. The gastronomic combination of this noble wine is certainly the dessert, each type of dessert accompanies it very well, or together with a piece of dark chocolate.
