2010 Recioto di Soave Classico "Costeggiola" [375ml] (Guerrieri-Rizzardi)

Guerrieri-Rizzard, Recioto di Soave Classico "Costeggiola" [375ml], Veneto, Italy, 2010

100% Garganega

CARAMEL, SPICE, DRIED FRUIT AND NUTS

Friends, Romans, and countrymen all agree, this is the product of good ears ("recie" in the local dialect) - the top-most, most sun-ripened grapes on the bunch, which are then dried in the sun until their juice is concentrated and powerful; on such a full sea we are now afloat, redolent of caramel, brown sugar, and spice, with golden raisins, dried orange peel & a touch of ginger. Rich sweetness gives way to pleasant, palate-cleansing acidity. The inevitable end to a meal is dessert, and this is a dessert wine fit for the gods. 

Serving Suggestion: Simple, not-very-sweet cookies like shortbread or biscotti, dunked into the wine. Use as part of a zabaglione - a light whipped custard - and pour over fresh berries. By itself, sipped slowly, sitting outside under the faultless stars.

2015 Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso "Pojega" (Guerrieri-Rizzardi)

Guerrieri-Rizzard, Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso Classico "Pojega", Veneto, Italy, 2015

45% Corvina, 45% Corvinone, 10% Rondinella, Molinara, & Merlot

CURRANT & BLACK CHERRY, PEPPERY & PIQUANT, TOASTED CHESTNUT

Famously utilizing the skins from the partially-dried grapes responsible for the Valpolicella region’s Amarones, the Veronese specialty known as Ripasso comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. This one from the micro-production maestros of Rizzardi is simultaneously lithe and lavish with peppery spice, firm fruit, and a year of aging in French and Savonian oak. An unusually high percentage of the coveted Corvinone grape is also of keen interest!

Serving Suggestion: Cranberry-glazed ham w/ clove & cinnamon. Tortellini w/ broad beans & pecorino.
