Intense ruby red colour, with delicate aromas of blackberry jam and spicy hints on the nose. This wine is very elegant and well-structured on the palate.
The grapes for the Recioto are grown on the steeply terraced hillside vineyards belonging to the co-op, where soils are chalky and poor. The cultivation method is Guyot.The wine is a blend of two different varieties.
The Torre del Falasco wines are the standard bearers of this co-operative, situated in the Valpantena, northeast of Verona. Known as the ’valley of god’ to the ancient Greeks, this area is well-known for its high quality red wines, due partly to the soils but also because of the cool breeze that blows down the valley from the foothills of the Dolomites.
