Drink now through to 2030. Serve lightly chilled.

Valpolicella literally means the “Valley of Cellars” and the region is famous for its exceptional red wines made from local indigenous grape varieties. The Nicolis family have been making wine here on their estate since 1951. Brothers Giancarlo and Giuseppe inherited the Nicolis estate from their father Angelo and currently work 40 hectares of vines including 15 hectares of the oldest and best-placed sites in the region.

The Nicolis family’s Recioto Della Valpolicella is created using traditional techniques which transform the ripe Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes into a rich and complex wine. Top quality grapes are carefully selected and left to dry out over the winter, concentrating the sugar content and flavour compounds. The raisined grapes are then fermented until an acceptable alcohol level has been reached, leaving a high sugar content in the finished wine.

The result is a luscious dessert wine with a full body and seductive flavours of ripe cherries, figs, dark chocolate, and vanilla. Thanks to the high sugar content, this is the partner for desserts like chocolate fondants, sticky toffee pudding, and panettone. It can also be served slightly chilled as a fun alternative to dessert.
