Vin Alto Recioto Riserva 375ml

“Recioto” refers to a dessert wine made from grapes that were dried on racks after picking. This process dries the grapes and so they are closer to raisins, concentrating the flavours. This dessert wine is lovely, rich and sweet. This dessert wine can be served with either dessert or cheese and biscuits.

Recioto is considered the ancestor of the Amarone and for many centuries, probably for a couple of millenniums it has been the top Italian Valpolicella wine. 

This New Zealand made version is fantastic and has been carefully crafted by Enzo Bettio who has been at the forefront of the introduction of Italian grape varieties.

Vin Alto in Clevedon, just south of Auckland, is the realisation of a dream for Enzo and his family, combining wine-making with a deer farm and Italian inspired hospitality.

The boutique winery is dedicated to the production of Italian style wines, combining old world charm with new world flair.  Varieties produced include Pinot Grigio, various blends of Montepulciano, Barbera and Merlot as well as Amarone and Ripasso style wines.
