Roccolo Grassi Recioto della Valpolicella DOCG 2017

Notes of fig, raisined berries and cocoa are
accompanied by a jammy, spicy bouquet with hints of
chocolate and coffee. Rich and complex on the palate,
the sweetness is beautifully balanced.
Producer Note
Roccolo Grassi was established in 1996 by Bruno Sartori and his two children Francesca
and Marco. Based in Veneto, they produce wines of unique character and strong
personality, which are expressive of their origins. Winemaker Marco Sartori is one of
hottest talents in the region. His philosophy is very simple; yields in the vineyard are
significantly reduced to obtain a fabulous fruit concentration. The 14 hectares of vines
are farmed sustainably and minimal intervention takes place in the winery. The result is
a collection of world class wines distinguished by their pure elegance.

Vineyard
This wine is made from 40 year old vines grown in a four hectare area. The vineyard is
planted with a south-easterly aspect and sits at an altitude of 200 to 250 metres above
sea-level. The soil type is made up of volcanic and balsatic components, which impart
wonderful mineral complexity to the wine. The vines are trained on a pergola system
and are planted at a density of 3,000 vines per hectare. Harvest took place at the end
of September.
Winemaking
The grapes were picked when they were super ripe and then raisined on slatted
shelves in a humidity and temperature controlled area of the winery for five to six
months. The grapes were cold macerated for six to seven days, which takes place
naturally, as the temperatures outside are low during February. The grapes were
crushed and the temperature was increased to 22 to 25°C to enable fermentation to
take place. This lasted for 20 to 30 days, during which time the cap was punched
down and pumped over daily. Fermentation was completed in barrel where it was
aged for 18 months in a mixture of new and old French barrels. The wine then spent a
further 24 months in bottle prior to release. This wine was made in limited quantities.
