91 points for Recioto della Valpolicella Classico DOCG 2017

Recioto della Valpolicella is a sweet wine with an intense garnet red colour. The grapes of Zenato’s Recioto come from a dedicated vineyard in Costalunga estate, in Sant’Ambrogio di Valpolicella, which is in the heart of the classic Valpolicella area.

The word ‘Recioto’ comes from ‘recia’ in the Veronese dialect. It means the ear.  It refers to the small wings or little side bunches, that crown the main cluster and, in the past, these were considered the part of the cluster with the highest quality. Especially in a cluster selected for its quality and so more suitable for withering.
