Recioto, 1974

Valpantena, Sweet Red Wine

"Recioto," as in "Recioto della Valpolicella," refers to a dessert wine made from grapes that were dried on mats after picking. This process turns the grapes closer to raisins, concentrating the flavors. The wines are lovely and taste how you'd expect raisins-turned-wine to taste, rich and sweet.

Price: £129.00 (1 in Stock)

Recioto, 1974

Cantina Tessari, Sweet Red Wine

This wine is made from grapes harvested in various vineyards located on hills in the Valpolicella zone (Mezzane and Tregnago hills). Different sources and different grape varieties are important to obtain well-balanced wines with the fine structure that only a few single areas in the Valpolicella zone can provide. Notes: Color: strong ruby red. Clear and transparent. Bouquet: notes of vanilla and ethereal airs depending on the period of aging in the barrel; notes of sweet fruits such as currants, blueberries, cherries depending on the varieties of grapes. Flavor: wine with a velvety, raisiny character combined with the structure and typical stylish bitterness to give it good balance.

Rivesaltes, 1974

Vin Doux Naturel
Ambre Hors d'Age, Les Vignerons Catalans

Rivesaltes wines from the hot Roussillon region in France, are perhaps the most underrated sweet wines in the world. This 1974 sweet wine displays a dark amber colour with a mature bouquet of sandalwood, dried rum raisins, smoky burnt caramel, bitter orange zest, dates and more. On the palate it is smooth and with a pleasant mouthfeel. Can match perfectly from aperitif to digestif and it is wonderful with caramel and fruit based desserts.

Smith Woodhouse Vintage Port, 1974

Late Bottled Vintage Port

Late Bottled Vintage port is from a single year. The wine ages 4-6 years in old oak casks (opposed to Vintage that ages 2-3). LBV fills the gap between the rubies and the vintage ports since a Ruby Port should be drunk quite young and a great Vintage Port may need 15 to 20 years to really open up and show its splendour. This led to the idea in the 1960s to age the wine 4 to 6 years in large casks before bottling it, thereby producing a wine with the style of a Vintage Port with its deep colour and concentration of fruit but with a more mature character caused by the longer ageing in wood.

Spanna, 1974

Dessilani

Spanna has often been cited by wine experts as one of Italy’s greatest ageing wines. Spanna’s longevity can be attributed, at least in part, to the addition of smaller amounts of less tannic, more acidic grape varieties. Tasting notes: The nose opens up beautifully after about an hour and the wine has gorgeous ripe and sweet fruit, nice acidity, and perfectly softened tannins.
