About This Wine

The name Recioto, descendant of the Roman Retico wine and ancestor of Amarone, appears in Verona towards the end of the 1800s derived from the dialectal word "recia" (ear) that indicates the most delicious, ripe and sweet part of the bunch. Cassiodorus, Minister of Theodoric, already described the particular processing technique: "the grape selected during autumn is hung upside down. It withers, it does not corrupt with ageing, and oozing the flavorless fluids, it sweetens with great gentleness". The Recioto Farina follows the traditional withering of its grapes in the fruttai (drying loft), then the aging in steel maintains the fruity floral essence that makes it an excellent accompaniment to desserts.

Farina of Veneto was founded in the early 1900s with a passion and desire for producing the highest quality wines possible from the Veneto region. Cousins Claudio and Elena Farina, now 3rd generation, are responsible for continuity of the Farina tradition and oversee all elements of production and evolution.
