CASAL DEI RONCHI
A noble, traditional, sweet dessert red wine from the Valpolicella region, this Recioto comes from the ancient Casal dei Ronchi vineyard on the Possessioni Serego Alighieri estate.
Made from the classic blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes, laid out for the winter to rest on bamboo racks in drying lofts during the Appassimento process.
The resulting wine is highly aromatic, fruity and smooth.
Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara (Serego Alighieri clone).
|Look||dark, opaque red.|
|Nose||intense aromas of cherries preserved in spirit, and walnuts.|
|Palate||sweet, super-ripe cherries, hints of plum jam with spices and elegant tannins.|
Excellent after-dinner wine. Goes very well with millefeuilles, country-style tarts, fruit pies, panettone and strawberries. Good with mild cheeses and gorgonzola.
20 years, the first 5 for the sweet fruity style, the following 15-18 years for a long ageing process acquiring spicy evolved aromas until the wine finally becomes similar to Port.
