Speri Recioto della Valpolicella La Roggia 2005 500ml

SKU 35331


A raisin wine of refined elegance and undoubted charm which is a seductive invitation to discover a world of fragrances. A dessert wine- which goes well with classic biscuits and cakes. La Roggia is obtained after a long drying process using the best grapes from the La Roggia vineyard, on the slopes of Monte Sausto in San Pietro in Cariano. It is a refined red "passito" (dried grape wine), extraordinarily rich and all-encompassing. It is a tempting, meditative wine which complements classic, traditional desserts.

Wine AdvocateSperi's 2005 Recioto della Valpolicella Classico La Roggia is a taut, mineral-driven version of Veneto's most famous dessert wine. Chocolate, plums, sweet spices and licorice all flow from this pretty, restrained Soave. The wine reveals terrific balance, with tannins that are especially refined in this vintage. As is often the case, I find this Recioto needs air to show at its best. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2015.
