Vin Santo Riserva 2011

Type: Sweet

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.

Harvest: Manual in small cases with a precise selection of the best grapes.

Vinification and maturation: 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.

Refinement: A few months in bottles before release.

Ageing capacity: Unlimited. This wine aquires extra complexity with age.

Sensory Characteristics: 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.

Serving suggestion: It matches matured cheeses and dried pastries, such as biscotti.

Serving temperature: Serve between 10° and 14° C.
