Some of you may be familiar with Recioto Della Valpolicella, a sweet, passito (dried grape) red wine from the neighbouring appellation that overlaps Soave's western edge, but Recioto Di Soave is far less well known. That is unfortunate, as these luscious, sweet white wines are made in exactly the same manner as their red cousins but from the white Garganega grape instead.

After harvesting, the grapes are laid out on racks to dry for anything up to five months and they can lose up to 50% of their weight through dehydration. These raisins are then gently pressed and the sugar rich juice is slowly fermented and partly matured in barrels.
