Medium Body, Sweet (Garganega). DOC. Alc 14.5%.
Recioto di Soave is a very special dessert wine and a true Italian classic that boasts winemaking heritage.
"San Zeno" is a white appassimento made by the shores of Lake Garda, from acclaimed family estate Fasoli Gino*, established in 1925, who are renowned for their Valpolicella wines like Ripasso and Amarone, as well as other rare appassimento reds.
From the winery:
Our recioto is an elegant sweet wine with an intense amber color. With honey and vanilla aromas and a slightly bitter and spicy aftertaste, the finish is long with a sweet mouthfeel. At harvest we select bunches of grapes and hang them by hand on a vertical net where they remain to dry for 5-6 months. After a soft pressing, fermentation takes place, which lasts 15-20 days. Aging takes place in barriques for 24-30 months.
This is one of the classic line wines. It is also a special line of wines in support of the local community. In their words: "Since the 1990s, Fasoli Gino has been working with a community of young disadvantaged people in Bardolino. This partnership combines both important work with the social needs of the area with that of protection of the landscape. The community’s vineyards are located on a beautiful hill overlooking Lake Garda where ancient olive groves and vineyards are tended for with organic farming methods. Our choice of adding value to an area with respect to all things living, is expressed at its maximum in Bardolino where Fasoli Gino unites caring for the environment with assisting society’s needs. The grapes for this wine are cultivate by members of the “Associazione Comunita’ dei Giovani”, young adults with special needs."
