Producer's notes: "This wine, originated by Veronese wine producers owes its name to the dialect word “Recia” (ear), outer part of the bunch of grapes (the parts most exposed to the sun). It is the product of careful processing and it begins with the selection during the grape-harvest and ends in February with the pressing of the grapes that have been carefully conserved in well ventilated lofts".

 

The Begali Estate is situated in the charming Valpolicella area, between Pedemonte and the hills of Castelrotto,near Verona and Lake Garda .  Since the beginning of the 20th century the Begali family have passed on the tradition and love of the land and its work from father to son.

Our vineyards (10 hectares) are set among cherry orchards covering hills and slopes in a small hamlet called Cengia. This name comes from the name of the rocks dotted around on the facing hill. This is why the wines we produce are so rich in aromas and typical flavours of  the fertile land and reflect the harmony and the singular characteristics of this area. We are very determined and take great care in our wine making process, from the vineyard to the cellar. This promotes our on going efforts to improve quality while respecting tradition.

We use a blend of the most important grapes of Valpolicella: Corvina (and Corvinone), Rondinella and other autochthonous varieties.

Now the tradition continues with the son and daughter of Lorenzo and Adriana, Giordano and Tiliana.
