Recioto-style sweet red - the grapes are dried for about three months (depending on the weather). Special yeasts are added as the wine ferments at low temperatures to bring our delicate and varied sweet flavours (no extra sugar here). The result: sweet, warm, velvety and utterly enchanting. Never tried a sweet red? Start right here and now.
The Ronca family have been caring for their vines on the gentle hills in the Sommacampagna area – just to the south of Lake Garda – since the 1970s. They capture the Lake Garda sun not just in their grapes, but also via solar panels for heating their water and producing electricity for the winery. They use no herbicides, insecticides or harvesting machines, and are currently in conversion to go completely organic.
