Tommasi Fiorato Recioto della Valpolicella DOCG

2014

In a Nutshell

Recioto of amazing complexity and depth.

Tasting Notes

Bright ruby red in colour. Intense plum perfumes with floral notes with a touch of sweet spice. The Fiorato is full-bodied and velvety, with flavours of red plums and cherries with a touch of sweetness on the finish.

Production Notes

The best bunches are carefully selected and hand-picked. They are then laid out in boxes of 5-6 kg and naturally dried in the fruttaio (a large room with natural air circulation) for five months. After the ‘appasimento’ or drying process, the grapes are gently pressed the following January. A skin maceration and alcoholic fermentation in wooden vats follows lasting 30 days at 26-28°C. After fermentation, the wine is matured for 12 months in French oak barrels before bottling.
