Recioto

Recioto

Overall Impression
Recioto is a dried grape wine. Grapes are harvested and raisined in drying rooms late in the year and often botrytis develops. Oxidized character is typical in traditional Recioto though a new generation of producers is looking to eliminate both the botrytis and oxidized character.
History
Recioto comes from north east Italy, historically from Veneto.
