Serafini & Vidotto, Recantina Montello e Colli Asolani 2019 (Recantina)

RRP £17.95

Recantina fell by the wayside mostly because of its very compact bunches, which are challenging for growers. Yet the grape offers a refined perfume, by contrast to some of the mouth-coating brutes out there. Having only recently come to the fore as single-variety wines, their age-worthiness is unknown, but they ought to age well. Serafini & Vidotto’s is outstanding, leaving behind a brambly trail of violet and blueberry goodness complemented by inky spices and herbs.
