Description

Vin Santo del Chianti Classico, a centuries-old tradition

From the Santa Cristina estate come the Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes that combine to give this intriguing sweet wine of ancient origins, called Vin Santo because the vinification of the best bunches left to wither in the attics throughout the winter took place during the holy week. Today, after the harvest, the bunches were left to dry on the racks of the Tignanello estate for three months, giving them the opportunity to lose water to the benefit of the concentration of sugars and aromatic substances. Then the vinification and maturation in traditional caratelli, wooden barrels of various cuts,for about three years.

It is presented in an amber-colored garment with a golden reflection. On the nose the scents of figs, prunes and dried dates have the upper hand over those of tobacco, custard and wild flowers. In the mouth it is opulent, sweet with barley and vanilla and strong coffee, perfectly balanced with the acidic shoulder that supports it. The closure is persistent and dotted with mineral returns.

To combine with Catalan cream or with blue cheeses such as gorgonzola.

Oggi la famiglia continua a scrivere la sua lunghissima storia di tradizione e qualità, contribuendo a portare in alto il vino italiano nel mondo, attraverso le numerose tenute di proprietà dalle quali nas...
