Vin Santo del Chianti DOC is one of the most famous, renowned and characteristic wines of the local Tuscan tradition. It is a complex and high quality passito wine, produced with Malvasia Aromatica (60%), Trebbiano (20%) and Chardonnay (20%) grapes from vineyards with 5500 vines per hectare and late harvesting of only the grapes deemed suitable for its production.
Vin Santo is a very particular and precious wine, which strictly respects the most ancient peasant traditions. The harvest is done by hand, selecting the best grapes which are subjected to a long and natural drying of at least 6 months. During this period, the grapes naturally lose more than 20% of their water content, concentrating the sugar and all other components in the berries. The dried grapes are pressed and the must obtained is placed in small barrels for a slow fermentation phase, which precedes an aging period, in the vinsantaia, lasting at least 6 years. The wine is also aged in the bottle for another 12 months before being released for consumption.
Vin Santo del Chianti DOC has a light but intense and bright amber color, with ethereal aromas and unique flavors. Extraordinary to accompany desserts or as a meditation wine.
