Giovanni Allegrini Recioto Classico is a luxurious Italian wine, steeped in history and renowned for its signature opulent sweetness. This vintage hails from the Allegrini estate in Veneto, Italy. It is crafted from native Corvina, Rondinella and Oseleta grapes, which are partially dried to concentrate sugars and intensify flavours. The resultant wine is a symphony of rich cherry and dried fruit notes, well-defined spice undertones, and a distinct chocolatey finish. A complex sousing in French oak imparts a harmonious balance, augmenting this Recioto's celebratory sophistication. It's an ideal partner for lavish desserts or savoured on its own.
On the nose, this wine is bursting with fruit, the notes of cherry are intertwined with pepper and thyme. The vibrant fruit notes give way to a teeming sweetness which is perfectly balanced with finesse in the smooth tannin-rich texture. The wine is named after the founder, Giovanni Allegrini, who chose this as his preferred wine.
