Recioto della Valpolicella Velluto Meroni, natural, sweet, unctuous, passito, stunning dessert wine. This is wine which takes you immediately to the rolling hills of the Valpolicella, sitting overlooking the vines sipping Recioto and grazing on Gorgonzola. Crafted by a true artisan in Carlo Meroni in the classic production method, it is traditional Valpolicella in the best sense of the word. There is a lot of pretty ropey Valpolicella out there, cheap imitations of the real thing are always disappointing but when you get a good one, it expresses Italian wine at its seductive best. Sweet but not cloying, layered with spice, dried fruits and nuts. An absolute stunner.
