The grapes used to produce this wine are dried on racks from the middle of September until the middle of March. They achieve a degree “Babo” of 39 (almost 430 g/l). In order to produce one litre of this Recioto 18 kilogrammes of grapes are required. The fermentation was induced immediately after crushing by means of a small addition of Recioto “bg” of the same year, already fermenting.
Fermentation took place at a temperature of below 14 degrees and lasted 50 days. The wine was racked with 260 g/l residual sugar and was placed in new barriques of Allier and Vosges oak. It remained on its own yeasts and batonnage was carried out several times over a thirty-month period until December 2004 when the wines was racked, assembled and bottled. It was given four months rest in bottle before being put released onto the market.
The wine has a deep ruby hue, impenetrable, with a spicy floral scent. In the mouth it is round and harmonious, full-bodied, beautifully balanced, with a notable tannic structure and an imposing concentration. It goes well with sweets, even chocolate, but is particularly felicitous with Pandoro and fine pastries.
