DOC Vinsanto del Chianti
Trebbiano 90% & Malvasia Bianca 10%
The grapes used for this traditional Vin Santo have been harvested from over 50years old vines with a density of 3000 plants per hectare. The training system is cordon spur.
After harvest, the grapes are being hung up under the roof top to dry for at least 4 months until they have reached their required sugar density.
Then the raisins are pressed, and the juice will be put in small wooden casks, so-called “caratelli”, of 50 or 100 liters, where they will slowly ferment. The caratelli are being sealed and remain closed for more than 5 years.
Thanks to this long and slow fermentation and oxydation, the Vin Santo matures into a precious wine that reflects time and uniqueness.
Of dark amber, the Vin Santo presents intense profumes that
remind of almonds and dried fruit.
Sweet “Wine of meditation”, to be enjoyed with a Cantuccini (typical Tuscan almond bisquit, that can be dipped into the Vin Santo),
or to be paired with matured cheese, blue chees or liver paté.
Temperature : 9 – 10 degrees
