Recioto della Valpolicella - a wonderful dessert wine, which is the perfect match to the traditional desserts from the local area such as Veronese Pandoro, Panettone and pastry but it can be happily paired with soft cheeses such as gorgonzola.
The territories called “Ronchiel” ,“Mandolari”, “Bosco”, “Carpanè” “La costa”, and “Tondin” as well as other smaller lots (all facing the south-east) have vines which are between 9 and 40 years old, aligning the plants in traditional rows and applying the pergola trentina (single or double) cultivation method, which permits a circa 3,000-plant-per-hectar density.
The management of the fields of grapevines is in harmony with the balance of nature, without stressing the use of irrigation or fertilization and maintaining the wooded areas bordering them: as a matter of fact, the production hardly ever exceeds 8000-9000 kg of grapes per hectare. Even the cultural procedures, which range from pruning the vines to the harvesting of the fruit, are carried out by hand, according to the concepts of the best and most founded winemaking tradition.
