Vinsanto del Chianti d.O.C.

The Vin Santo is produced with Trebbiano, Malvasia and San Colombano grapes. It has an amber bright yellow color, with at nose clear hints of dried fruit and chestnut flour, which tend to evolve in citrus aromas.
As by Tuscan tradition, for Vin Santo is done, manually, a careful selection of the grapes during the grape harvest, which are immediately laid out on the mats to make them wither. When the grapes reach the right concentration of sugars, they are pressed softly. The must or “grape juice” is left to ferment in small-sized barrels of chestnut for minimum 3 years.
