[ Home > Wines > Wines From Italy > Il Poggione Vin Santo 500ml 2001 ]|
Typical traditional Tuscan wine produced from Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes, harvested then dried on straw mats in the old traditional way in order to increase the sugar concentration. After pressing, fermentation and slow aging (at least 5 years) take place in caratelli, 100 litre barrels, on the madre, a compound of yeast and bacteria residues kept from year to year which has a significant effect on the characteristics of the Vin Santo.
Amber hue; intense bouquet comprising notes of dried apricot, bitter almond and honey. Neither too sweet nor too dry and its good acidity make this a versatile wine to accompany many kinds of food.
