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.
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? considerable sweetness; a silky, almost endless finish leaves the mouth pleasantly clean.
Food Pairing Suggestions
Pre-eminently a ?editation,?or sipping, wine, it is also delicious with nuts and a wide range of sweets and desserts. Best served in large stemmed crystal.
