"Recioto," as in "Recioto della Valpolicella," refers to a dessert wine made from grapes that were dried on mats after picking. This process turns the grapes closer to raisins, concentrating the flavours. The wines are lovely and taste how you'd expect raisins-turned-wine to taste, rich and sweet.

This 1978 wine by Giuseppe Quintarelli is one of the best Reciotos out there. You should expect an evolved nose of dried fig and prune, dried Italian herbs and some savoury notes.
On the palate, it should display a high acidity that balances the sweetness very well. The flavour intensity should be pronounced with layers and layers of red fruits, herbs and savoury character lingering on the palate. A fabulous wine for someone born in 1978 and for any special occasions or anniversaries commemorating the 1978 vintage.
