Description

This Vin Santo sports a more sophisticated and savory approach that is in part due to its very character and in part due to its age. The 2008 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico (in a 375-milliliter bottle) shows a polished copper color with resin, brown sugar, caramel and dried fruit. This wine has a touch of wild mushroom or underbrush as well. The finish is powerful, very sweet and delightful. This wine shows a very careful sense of balance and harmony. It's almost underplayed as far as Vin Santos go, but it is exceedingly elegant nonetheless. The blend is 55% Malvasia and 45% Trebbiano, and the oak aging is extended over ten years. Only 8,000 bottles were made. 95 Points, Wine Advocate
