Vin Santo DOC, Barbi, 2009

18.49

The classic dessert wine of Tuscany is made from late harvested Trebbiano, Malvasia and Sangiovese grapes hung over wires in well-ventilated rooms and dried until well into the New Year. Pressed and fermented with natural yeasts around Easter time - hence the name vin santo, literally “holy wine” – it is then aged in small oak barrels of oak or chestnut called caratelli. Barbi’s wonderful viscous, intense, aromatic, nectar should last 15 years or more – if you can keep your hands off it. Try with Cantucci or Cantuccini – traditional, Tuscan, almond biscotti!
