VIN SANTO

This unfortified sweet wine is particular to our region and made in the most traditional way from a blend of Trebbiano, Malvasia and Sangiovese. 

The grape clusters are handpicked in the late fall, laid-out and hung-up to dry in a special room with natural ventilation until January of the following year. The grapes are then pressed and undergo fermentation in oak. After the first fermentation, the casks are sealed and placed in our vinsantaia until bottling. The wine spends a minimum of 5 years in small casks and the production is extremely limited. 
 


Tasting Notes

Deep amber colour with a complex nose of peaches, apricots and tropical fruit as well as honey and roasted nuts. This full-bodied dessert wine has a thick texture and very long finish. Cellaring potential of more than 20 years.
