The name Recioto, was spontaneously created among Veronese winemakers during the past century, It owes its meaning to the word in the local dialect “recia” (ear), indicating the outermost part of the grape bunch, being the most exposed to the sun, and used to produce a sweet wine from dried grapes. The Recioto wine requires special attention and dedication: it is the product of accurate processing that begins with the selection of grapes during the harvest and ends with the pressing of bunches that have been preserved (dried) with great care, in the grape drying facility called “fruttaio”.
We are a family winery. We are located in a small village called Cengia from the name of the nearby rocks on the top of the hill. Cengia is located in the heart of the Valpolicella Classica in San Pietro in Cariano, halfway between the city of Verona and Garda Lake.
The winery was born towards the end of World War II thanks to grandpa Giordano and it continued with his son Lorenzo and the collaboration of his wife Adriana who led the company to sell the first bottles in 1986. Nowadays this tradition goes on thanks to the children Giordano and Tiliana.
