Harvest and Vinification Notes
Ricco Blueberry is a sweet red, made from selected grapes. It is full of flavor, yet soft and deliciously sweet. In order to create its richness, the stemmed grapes are placed in stainless steel tanks, where they are mace- rated in the skins at 50 degrees Fahrenheit, which extract the delicate aromas and color. The grape must is then separated and stored at 32 degrees Fahrenheit until bottling. Just prior to bottling, the must is allowed to warm, and the natural blueberry aromas are combi- ned. Once the desired alcohol and pressure level is reached, fermentation is halted, it is filtered and bottled. The result is a deliciously smooth and elegant sweet wine specialty.
Ricco Blueberry is fresh, sweet and has an all-natural blueberry taste.
