2000 Venturini Recioto della Valpolicella 500ml

SKU #1019342

Around this time of year in Italy (and increasingly, stateside), the holiday season is synonymous with panettone season. Brightly colored boxes containing these firm and long lived cakes decorate stores and cafes. If you have never tried panettone, and you think it's like our own fruitcake, you are in for a delightful surprise. The Italian version is flakier and lighter, with an almond essence note, a more measured use of dried fruit and a taste that is never too sweet to enjoy a big chunk, even at breakfast time. This is the wine to enjoy with panettone, well… maybe not at breakfast! It's a strong garnet red wine, with a bouquet that is very fine and delicate with Amarone-like notes of earth and dried cherries as well as sweet mature plums and raisins. It has a warm, full, velvety sweet flavor and a long, haunting finish. 70% corvina veronese, 20-25% rondinella and 5-10% molinara.
