Recioto di Soave is a traditional wine. Bright gold. Notes of honey and candied citrus fruits are combined with sensations of dehydrated apricot and ginger. Its rich sweetness is tempered by an excellent acidic-savory shoulder. Long aromatic persistence.
The castle is the one in Soave: a heritage from the Middle Ages, when the town was still called by the old name of Suavia; Giovanni and Rosetta’s daughters, however, have been the main female characters in this story since the start of the twenty-first century. Our family has been living and cultivating the land since the nineteenth century in Fittà: a small rural village mounted like a precious stone on the hills of Soave Classico.
The history of Suavia however began later, in 1982, when Giovanni and Rosetta (the father and mother), aware of the great potential of their area, decided to set up on their own and make their mark, crushing their grapes and making their own wine.
Today we three sisters, Meri, Valentina and Alessandra, carry on the family tradition and run the winery always working here in Fittà, where it all started.
Being aware of this, we can claim that our vineyard management is not a short-sighted one limited to the wellbeing of the vines alone, but it safeguards the landscape in its entirety.
The work carried out by man plays a very important role in the management of both the vineyard and the natural surrounding landscape, which is made up of elements that must be considered individually and duly taken care of in order to preserve the harmony created by their unity, i.e. that of nature itself.
Pairing Suggestions: It can be drinked alone as a "meditation wine" or with food. It is very good with herbal, salted or sharp cheeses, patè de foie gras and all those foods that bring out its emmolient quality. Excellent with all dry pastry products.
Maturation: In steel tanks for at least 24 months in contact with its lees without any decanting.
