Wine owes its name to the ”recie” (ears), or the outer parts of the bunch, most exposed to the sun, used to produce a truly unique sweet raisin wine. It is the product of a careful processing that starts with the selection during the harvest and ends with the pressing in February of the bunches carefully preserved in the loft.
Very deep ruby red color with violet reflections; on the nose intense hints of red fruit; a decidedly persuasive and warm flavor, in a velvety harmony of refined sensations.
