Vin Santo del Chianti DOC

The grapes and the Vineyard

Two variations of the typical Tuscan sweet wine called Vin Santo. These corroborating wines are born from the dried grapes on mats and from the slow aging in chestnut caratelli, from which comes a sweeter wine, the Vin Santo, and from others a drier wine, the Piovano Arlotto.

The wine

At sight they are amber colored, the Piovano is very limpid and lively, the Vin Santo is more intense. The nose prevails notes of dried fruit, honey and a nice kit of toasted sensations. On the palate both have an intense structure and a long persistence.
Piovano Arlotto accompanies liver, foie gras and cheeses.
Vin Santo accompanies the pastry.
