ACCORDINI 2010 RECIOTO 500ML

The first reference to this wine goes back to the 5th century A.D. in a letter of Cassiodoro, minister of king Theodoric, who was looking for red "Acinatico" for the royal meals. This was a red wine made during the Winter months with wilted grapes; it was very difficult to get, at least in large quantities and was produced in the hills around Verona. It is remarkable that after so many centuries this wine is still produced with the same technique and the same care.

Colour very intense purple red. Bouquet typical of dried fruit with scent of violet. Flavours are slightly sweet with; the balance between tannin, sugar and acidity exalts the scent of dried fruit which persists long in the palate.

This dessert wine is particularly suited for cakes and pies: "pasta frolla", "Sbrisolona" (typical of Valpolicella), Cantucci, bitter chocolate; in Verona it is traditionally served with "Pandoro"
