2016 COFFELE 'LE SPONDE' RECIOTO DI SOAVECoffele
Zone: DOCG of Recioto di Soave
The winery is located in a 16th century residence in Soave, a beautiful facility with a nice tasting room, where you can taste and also purchase Coffele’s wines. The family vineyards in Soave are located in Castelcerino, in the hills north of Soave in the traditional Classico region. Today, in this 25 hectare vineyard, they cultivated Garganega and Trebbiano di Soave, as well as Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The house here in Castelcerino has been restored, and a large grape-drying room added, used for their award winning Recioto di Soave. Most recently, Coffele has expanded into the Valpolicella DOC with the purchase of a small estate in Campiano, and are now producing a Valpolicella and an Amarone.
Recioto di Soave is a wonderful discovery. Rich, intense and fresh, yet with controlled sweetness. Characters of apricot, peach and almond, plenty of structure and an almost drying finish make it so more-ish. Great for cheese plates and desserts, especially pastries and anything with apricot and peaches and nuts.
