Recioto di Soave 'Le Colombare' 2012
The top parts (recie, meaning ears) of each select Garganega bunch, with the ripest and best exposed grapes, are dried for about 5 months on bamboo canes in the traditional method, the natural environment allowing the grapes to dehydrate and concentrate and encourage the development of botrytis. The shrivelled grapes are then pressed and the wine is aged for 2 years in oak. Ripe tropical fruit with candied peel, the palate is round and generous with a long finish.
