Sweet Wine Sweet Wine Score:

Valpolicella (Veneto) The wine shows a deep ruby red color and nuances of ruby red, impenetrable to light. The nose denotes personality with intense, pleasing and elegant aromas of black cherry jam, blueberry jam, blackberry jam, plum jam, raspberry and dried violet followed by pleasing aromas of vanilla, chocolate and hints of cinnamon and peanut. In mouth reveals a tannic attack however well balanced by alcohol, good correspondence to the nose, intense flavors and good body, pleasing sweetness. The finish is persistent with pleasing flavors of blackberry, black cherry and blueberry. This Recioto ages for 12 months in barrique followed by 9-12 months of aging in bottle.
