A recipe that dates back to the 6th Century AD and is still living is finally seeing an upwards progression. Sommelier Magandeep SINGH and Gagan SHARMA talk about Recioto Delle Valpolicella.
The supreme dessert wine with a heritage longer than most, is made by harvesting ripe grapes, drying them to raisins, and then fermenting them with some level of toughness.
The handsome duo taste a Recioto from 2004 and decode its journey thus far.
They also demystify the connection and the absolute disconnect between what is also mistakenly believed to be a sweet wine – Amarone Della Valpolicella.
