Buglioni Recioto della Valpolicella Classico Il Narcisista DOCG 2016 500ML (Italy) Rated 91WSMore from Buglioni
Wine Spectator Review
This wine offers flavors of baked cherry laced with notes of vanilla and star anise. Those rich flavors are balanced by tea-like tannins and a surge of bright acidity that cleanses the finish.
Wine Tasting Notes
A sweet red wine from raisins with a dark ruby-red color. Intense and elegant aromas of ripe fruit, raisins, black cherries and plums in alcohol, and spicy scents of cocoa, vanilla and tobacco. Sweet and warm flavors, velvety and round. Recioto is a wine for meditation, to be enjoyed after a meal, even on its own. It is traditionally paired with plain pastries or biscuits, and makes a tempting mate for chocolate cake. For those who dare, we suggest you try it with very mature or blue cheeses.
