Description Technical Specs (May be in Italian If There Is Not an English Version Available)
The Vin Santo is made following the classical rules of Tuscan tradition, it must be made from the Chianti white grapes, Trebbiano and Malvasia. They select the best grapes and leave them to dry for 5 months to maximize sugar content, the grapes are then pressed and the must is left to rest 24 hours. Once the wine has rested, it is put into the caratelli. They are small casks that are filled only three-fourths of their capacity. The wine is left in them to mature for 4 years. The caratelli are stored in a Vinsantaia, where the alternation of seasons ages the wine to perfection
The resulting wine is sweet, showing aromas slightly oxidized and lovely
