Acinatium Recioto di Soave Classico DOCG 2012

Recioto di Soave is the most historical wine produced in the area. In Roman/Medieval times it was called “Acinatium”, a Latin word which means “made with grape berries” because it was produced using only the best and ripest single berries of Garganega: an extremely careful and precise selection which is consistent with the Tessari philosophy of meticulous selection.  This wine is the traditional wine of family gatherings and the most special of occasions.

 

 

Tasting Notes

This wine is a brilliant saffron yellow with a beautiful nose of apricot, pineapple and grapefruit.  Hints of eucalyptus, honey and sweet almonds mixed with harmonius mineral notes finish with an elegant and enveloping sweetness and long persistence.

Food Pairing


Excellent as meditation wine. Can accompany blue cheese, salty or spicy foods and fatty meats.   Excellent with all sweets and pastries, cream deserts and delicious with cheee and nut desserts.
