RECIOTO  – SWEET WINE Recioto della Valpolicella DOCG is an intensely flavored, sweet red wine made from dried (passito) Corvina grapes in the Veneto region of north-eastern Italy.
Classically the wine is paired with local pastries such as pastafrolla, but it can work well with (not too sweet) chocolate or cherry-based desserts, or be drunk as an aperitif or with more powerful savory dishes.
