Recioto della Valpolicella DOCG 750Ml, Venturini

RECIOTO DELLA VALPOLICELLA DOCG, 750ML – VINTAGE 2016

AWARDS:

  • Gold Medal at  “International Merano wine festival”

This is the oldest wine of this area, know since Roman times.

The wine has an intense ruby color, livened by warm glints of garnet. It conquers the nose with the sweet, enveloping fragrances of small ripe fruits in jam. In the bouquet one recognizes cherry, wild strawberry, blueberry and fragrant notes of dark, red blossoms. The mouth is velvety, with a delicious balance of the taste that is definitely sweet, but at the same time appropriately fresh, savory and tannic. Luscious returns of small fruits accompany the long finish.

In the ancient tradition of the Valpolicella district, Recioto was opened on special occasions, and served with the dishes of important occasions. We continue to produce it in the footsteps of our tradition.

The enormous drinkability of our Recioto makes it a gourmet wine, perfect to accompany a dessert of fancy biscuits or a tasty Sacher torte, but we recommend that you try it with savory dishes as well, such as aged cheese or a flavorful local salami.

Try it and we’re sure you’ll agree!

ABOUT VENTURINI FAMILY:

It was in 1963 that, in San Floriano, in the heart of the Valpolicella district, the winery Azienda Agricola Venturini Massimino first made its appearance on the scene. The indissoluble bond between love for the land and experience acquired in years of hard work and devotion became a business that has passed through the generations to the present time: grandfather Antonio and dad Massimino passed the baton ideally to Daniele, Mirco and Giuseppina, each with his or her own skills and interests, one for growing, one for wine- making, one for management. The timeline has lengthened but the history of the Venturini family has continued on its path of passion for the culture of the area and respect for the knowledge inherited from those who lived its history.

“Devotion and passion are an everyday experience, living as we do, in contact with nature, following and respecting its rhythms. It is with steadfast love and admiration that the family gaze proudly at the ripe fruit, remembering the gentle way grandpa Massimino would caress our faces with the rough, toil-worn hands of a man of the soil”.

The family look to the future, without forgetting their roots. The strength of the vocation keeps the Venturini family constantly in activity. Day after day, it is fed by the desire to give life to a product capable of reflecting what is truest and deepest in the soul of a company that has never forgotten its origins, receiving from them the stimulus to renew itself and respect the old teachings, to grow stronger and better.
