Pomino Vinsanto DOC

The Vinsanto is produced from Chardonnay and Trebbiano grapes that are left on the vine before being removed by bunches to be hung and dried from rafters for at least 3 months. The grapes are matured and refined in large vats for 4 years, giving a wine of great fineness.

Tasting Notes
Rich, deep amber. The nose shows exceptional aromatic complexity, from sun-dried grapes and mixed nuts, to candied fruit, with intriguing notes of Asian spices. Impressive weight on the palate, but with magisterial balance; nicely crisp, with a tasty acidity that beautifully offsets the wine?s considerable sweetness; a silky, almost endless finish leaves the mouth pleasantly clean.

Food Pairing Suggestions
Pre-eminently a ?meditation,? or sipping, wine, it is also delicious with nuts and a wide range of sweets and desserts. Best served in large stemmed crystal.
