Grape harvesting 
Only the best straggly bunches or their extremely ripe parts that have been exposed to the sun are picked by hand and placed in boxes. It is the “recete”, or sides of the bunch that are preferred, and from which this Valpolicella prince obtains its name. The grapes are left to dry for 100-120 days in boxes, or hung in bunches according to the traditional “Sala” method. 

Fermentation 
Slow fermentation with maceration from 15 to 20 days. The fermentation is stopped to preserve the typical sweetness of this product. Aged in steel vats. 

Organoleptic properties 
Intense ruby red colour with purplish highlights. Fruity aroma that recalls cherries and raspberries in particular. Soft, embracing and pleasantly sweet flavour with overtones of dried fruit. Long-lasting aroma. 

Food pairings 
Dessert wine. Excellent with cakes and dry pastries, also perfect with herb cheeses.
