- Buglioni Il Recioto della Valpolicella Classico DOC 2011 500ML (Italy) Rated 91WS
Wine Spectator Review
Light and silky in texture and weight, but packed full of ripe plum sauce, baked black cherry and strawberry pâte de fruit flavors, revealing accents of cocoa powder, medicinal herbs and graphite. Well-balanced and creamy, with a lasting, spiced finish. Drink now through 2025.
Wine Tasting Notes
A sweet red wine from raisins with a dark ruby-red color. Intense and elegant aromas of ripe fruit, raisins, black cherries and plums in alcohol, and spicy scents of cocoa, vanilla and tobacco. Sweet and warm flavors, velvety and round. Recioto is a wine for meditation, to be enjoyed after a meal, even on its own. It is traditionally paired with plain pastries or biscuits, and makes a tempting mate for chocolate cake. For those who dare, we suggest you try it with very mature or blue cheeses.
