A very pronounced amber colour. Intense, fine and pleasant on the nose with notes of raisins and candid fruit followed by honey, vanilla and dry fig aromas with hints of walnut and coffee. At the palate it reveals a full and intense body, with a very good balance between the softness and heat of its alcohol and its freshness. The finish is long and extremely pleasant. Beautiful when paired with mature cheese and pastries such as biscotti.


Tasting Notes

50% Trebbiano 50% Malvasia Small and sculptural rows of Malvasia and Trebbiano lost in an extension of golden wheat, constitute the source of our Vin Santo. The accurate selection of the grapes and the patient wait for the seasons to transform this noble must are our secrets to produce this precious nectar, so unique in its absolute distinction. Vineyards are situated 400 mt. above sea level in soil rich in marl and limestone with sun exposure from the south. The grapes are left to wither in a ventilated room for about four months. After this period they are softly pressed and the collected must is immediately put in small oak barrels of 50 litre capacity. These barrels, traditionally called caratelli, are placed in the attic of the winery where the wine slowly ferments and matures for 5 years, exposed to temperature changes during the seasons.
