Item Description

"Tuscany's Vin Santo is made by fermenting very ripe, then partially dried white grapes in oak barrels for a few years until it becomes Sherry-like. Because some residual sugar typically remains after fermentation, Vin Santo is considered to be a dessert wine; however, there are some highly prized dry versions. This blend of 50% Malvasia, 45% Trebbiano, and 5% Sangiovese was fermented for 10 full years to complete dryness. It shows a brilliant, amber color, an intense and spicy bouquet, and generous flavors of apricot, honey, and vanilla. It is a unique ap?ritif, but you can also dunk your biscotti in it! "
