Drink now or cellar for up to 8 years. Serve lightly chilled.

The Brunelli family have lived and worked in the village of San Pietro in the heart of the Valpolicella wine region at least as far back as the 18th century. Originally workers on the estate that now bears their name, over the years the family began to buy small plots on the estate and in 1936 they began making their own wines here. Today young winemaker Alberto Brunelli represents the current generation of the family to take care of the estate along with his parents, Luigi and Luciana.

The family’s seductively rich Recioto Della Valpolicella is made according to traditional local winemaking practices whereby the Corvina, Rondinella, and Molinara grapes are left to dry in shallow crates in dedicated drying lofts over the winter. This concentrates the sugar content and flavours in the grapes, enabling Alberto to make tiny quantities of this lusciously sweet dessert wine which is then aged in oak barrels for 8 months to add yet more complexity and intensity.

The result is a succulent sweet wine with a generous full body and enticing flavours of dark chocolate, figs, ripe plums, and molasses. Thanks to high residual sugar, this is an exceptional partner for chocolate-based desserts, rich fruit cakes, and sticky toffee pudding.
