Recioto della Valpolicella Amarone is what happens when you first dry the grapes in order to concentrate the flavors. It makes a big, velvety, fruity, elegant wine which has aromas of raisins and black cherry backed by some earthier or spicier notes. It generally offers big cherry or raspberry flavors underlined by refined tannins which are balanced with some acidity. It may also offer vanilla or a slight sweetness on the finish.
