The best quality dessert wines: from Recioto to Passito

With regards to fine dessert wines, on this online wine shop there is a great choice ranging from Vin Santo going to Recioto and then to Passito, among dozens of bottles produced by the best Italian and foreign wineries.

We will start with Chateau d'Yquem Sauternes 1996 – the six liter bottle is available on our website - with its unmistakable bright yellow color, which is a factor in placing it among the best Sauternes in the world. Thanks to the rich bouquet of dried fruit and to the yellow floral notes, it is sublime when accompanied with cheese and foie gras.

Enoteca Properzio also offers Chateau d'Yquem Sauternes 2007 and Chateau d'Yquem Sauternes 2014, the latter is a meditation wine and considered in all respects the 'king' of the Sauternes. Vin Santo Montepulciano DOC Occhio di Pernice Avignonesi 1999, with its characteristic intense color, stands out among top fine Italian dessert wines. This fine wine is almost creamy in the mouth, in addition to the aromas of plum and black cherry jam, which makes it perfect to taste at the end of the meal.

Tuscany, Veneto or Emilia: fine Italian dessert wines

fine white wines

From the wines of Tuscany we go to the wines of Veneto, where Recioto della Valpolicella Classico Quintarelli 2004 comes from, with its enveloping hints of cherry and wild blackberry, it is to be tasted as a meditation wine or to accompany dessert. Rubacuori Poderi Morini is instead from Emilia-Romagna: a raisin wine of which only 4 thousand bottles have been produced and which comes from only overripe Centesimino grapes. It is velvety and at the same time persistent in the mouth.
