It is complex and rich in aromas. Candied fruit, citrus fruits, dried apricots, dried fruit, vanilla and cream, ginger, sweet spices. On the palate it maintains an extraordinary balance with a beautiful expression of fruit and an elegant almond finish.

Excellent served with pastries, fruits, lobster, foie gras, blue cheese, and as a digestif!

The Recioto di Soave is a delicious sweet white wine ​​from Garganega grapes. It is well-balanced with a silky texture and intense fruit and floral aroma.

The grapes are harvested by hand at the beginning of September and left to dry until early spring whilst being carefully monitored: the berries are sorted by hand and any damaged grape is discarded.  The aging is carried out in stainless steel vats.

Vicentini Agostino

The family Vicentini produce their well regarded wines in the Val d‘Illarsi, in the Soave and Valpolicella region. Agostino works with his wife Teresa and their children Emanuele and Francesca, and they produce wines from three very distinct terroirs, at two very different altitudes. The first terroir is on volcanic rock within the Valle dei Ciliegi (valley of cherries), this land is largely responsible for their Valpolicella and Soave Casale. The second is on limestone in the commune of Terrelunghe, where Garganega and Trebbiano di Soave are grown.

Both of these terroirs are at relatively low altitudes, under 100m above sea level. The Valpolicella, Piazzo di Campiano comes from one of the highest vineyards in Valpolicella, at an altitude of over 400m. The rock is limestone with pitifully thin topsoils, only local red varieties are planted here and this is where Agostino’s father and his family moved away from a few years before the second world war.  It was a very difficult time, where poverty and hunger forced many families to emigrate.

Agostino was early to bottle his own wines and was also the first to return to viticulture in Campiano; those very same hills whose fortunes have now changed, thanks to a combination of climate change and a total transformation in the way the world enjoys wine, high altitude red is now treasured.
