Roccolo Grassi, 2009 Sartori Recioto Valpolicella DOCG

"The 2009 Recioto della Valpolicella melds together in the glass with gorgeous texture and resonance. Mocha, plums, spices, bittersweet chocolate and dried flowers are some of the many notes that blossom in the glass. The 2009 is an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next few years. Like all of the wines here, the Recioto is relatively laid back, with modest sweetness and opulence compared to its peers."
–July 2015, Antonio Galloni
