DOWNLOAD TECHNICAL SHEET

Giovanni Allegrini, the man who symbolises Valpolicella, was a great lover of Recioto. His offspring Walter, Marilisa and Franco have dedicated this wine to their father since 1990. An extraordinary innovator, Giovanni used Recioto to measure the skill of the winemakers of the time. Recioto is one of the oldest wines in the world, dating back to Roman times. It is a sweet wine and unique in its kind, able to promote contemplation and accompany life’s most joyful occasions. Today it is widely recognized as the noble ‘forefather’ of Amarone.

Tasting notes

A sweet wine, intense ruby red in colour. The bouquet is extremely broad and varied: notes of dried fruit and blackberry jam are accompanied by spices, in particular cloves and cinnamon, and hints of violet. Its incredible freshness is captivating and distinguishes it from any other passito or ‘raisined’ wine.
