Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Amber yellow colour with gold reflections. The nose offers intense aromas of orange and apricot jam with hints of honey, chestnut purée, almonds. The palate is reminiscent of toasted almonds, amaretto, nuts and dried figs. Generous white wine with a persistent finish.
Rated 93 Points Wine Advocate - "The 2006 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico opens to a light caramel color with amber highlights and loads of brilliant gold locked within. There’s a toasted element to the bouquet that comes across as oven-roasted walnut or charred baguette. Oyster shell and grilled herb also appear. A touch of acidity ultimately gives the wine balance against the weightiness of those toasted flavors. This dessert wine is approachable now, or could age longer."
Production Notes
The grapes destined for Vin Santo are gathered late in the harvest, at the point at which the sugar content is high enough to sustain the long ageing process that this wine undergoes. The bunches are hung and left to dry partially for several months. The must obtained from light crushing ferments slowly and is then placed in 225-litre half-barriques of oak.
