The term Recioto comes from the Veronese dialectal word recia meaning ear.
The name is used to denote the small side bunches that “crown” the larger clusters. According to local tradition, their fruit is considered to be the best.
This dessert wine lights up the glass with its vibrant nuanced colors. It’s marvelous when served with chocolate fondue but it also pairs well with any oven-fired dessert, like Verona-style pandoro, classic panettone, or even crunchy cookies.
