Recioto is an Italian wine made from semi-dried grapes with concentrated sugars and flavors. Most recioto wines hail from the Veneto wine region in Italy; the best example is Recioto della Valpolicella, an extremely sweet version of amarone, which is fermented dry. Recioto wines display the same licorice and black cherry notes as amarone, with the addition of a slight rustic note brought on by the effects of Botrytis.
