65% Corvina (65%), Corvinone (25%) and Rondinella blend. Recioto is the most ancient wine used in Valpolicella. Its roots go deep into the history of the area, when the Romans were already crafting it from local grapes. The bunches dry for about 3 months before the pressing and the wine ages in French oak tonneaux for about 30 months. The result is this sweet precious and spicy wine, deeply red and seductive, with sharp acidity.Sweet Organic Red Blend 14.5%
The Fidora family have always been trailblazers and their vineyard is recognised as the oldest organic estate in the Veneto region. In 1974, Guido Fidora took the decision to convert his family vineyard from conventional to organic viticulture. Behind his decision was a desire to strive towards two key principles – the avoidance of chemicals and the promotion of biodiversity. Nowadays, the philosophy of the estate, now controlled by Emilio Fidora, continues to revolve around the importance of biodiversity, and they are extremely proud that their vineyards are home to a burgeoning population of hares, foxes, pheasants and countless species of bird.
