Recioto della Valpolicella DOCG 2017, Le Bertarole (Half Bottle)
Stunning dessert wine from one of the region's most interesting, highly rated, organic growers. Forest fruits, dark cherries and chocolate - just perfect with pudding.
The vineyard has made wine naturally since 1980 and specialise in taking traditional methods and fine tuning them to make wines of exceptional quality and substance. Grass is grown between the vines which are worked individually to provide the best distribution of leaf coverage. Made from grapes that are slowly dried on small wooden crates from September until March, providing a wine that is naturally sweet and concentrated without adding sugar.
A must try red dessert wine that is packed with complex rich, fruity, spicy, choclatey flavours with notes of walnuts and hazlenuts as well as spicy notes of clove and nutmeg. If Amarone was a dessert wine - this would be it. Sweet, balanced, smooth and long long finish. Enjoy with chocolate and rich fruity puddings.
