The Recioto della Valpolicella DOC produced by the energetic Marinella Camerani in the Corte Sant'Alda company comes from the selection of 60% Corvina Grossa and 40% Rondinella grapes harvested in the Vallett and Retratto vineyards, located in the Val di Mezzane (VR) at 350 meters above sea level: here the vines have their roots in medium-textured limestone soils. The training system used is Guyot and Demeter Certified Biodynamic Viticulture is practiced in the vineyard. As for Amarone, the selected grapes are harvested by hand and placed in small crates to dry according to the traditional system, therefore without any forcing, the pressing generally takes place at the end of February. Fermentation, in wooden vats, starts spontaneously due to the natural presence of indigenous yeasts. Extract of tannins, sugars, low temperatures and the circumscribed environment such as the small oak barrels of hl. 1.18, where the wine still in fermentation is stored, affect the progress of the fermentation itself, making it slow and stunted until it stops naturally and autonomously, leaving the characteristic residual sugar in the wine that identifies it well.
Ruby red with violet reflections; on the nose there are hints of red fruit in alcohol, jam and sweet spices. In the mouth it is sweet, but well balanced by acidity; the hints of fruits, raisins, spices and cocoa return, leaving a long persistence.
Wine capable of excellent evolutionary skills.
Taste it at a temperature of 13 ° C combining it with a chocolate cake with a soft heart.
