Trabucchi d'Illasi 'Recioto di Soave' Recioto di Soave DOCG 2006

Member Review by vino in love:

'Recioto di Soave' had an intense, brilliant amber color. 12.5% was the label listed ABV. On the nose there was a heavy aroma of wild flowers - especially chamomile and elderflower, lots of white chocolate and a few aromatic herbs. An incredibly elegant bouquet, which made me even more excited to take a first sip. It was amazing! Sweet but not extremely sweet (Trabucchi's Passito Sparavieri is sweeter for example). A very noble wine with notes of honey and caramelized white fruit. 'Recioto di Soave' was well-structured and of good balance. The wine had a long finish. Once again, elegant describes the palate best. The wine was outstanding. There is only one sweet wine which I consider better: Trabucchi's Recioto della Valpolicella - that wine is simply unmatched. {rating} The big wine glasses You might have noticed by looking at the picture that we served the wine in very big glasses. This is very important. The wine needs lots of air in order to show its full beauty. The owner of Trabucchi himself, Giuseppe Trabucchi, explained that to me on two occasions - at a wine tasting dinner that I attended in Munich and when I was visiting the winery. We served a little bit of Recioto in a small dessert wine glass and there were really only less aromas on the nose so we poured the wine back from the tiny glass into a big glass.
