Vin Santo 2004

37.5cl Rocca di Montegrossi Malvasia Bianca del Chianti Italy > Tuscany Sweet
Marco’s Vin Santo is one of the very best, produced from a single-vineyard of old vine Malvasia. The berries are selected from the ripest bunches of botrytis affected grapes, dried, crushed, fermented and then aged for five years in barrel. It is an enormously rich, unctuous, sweet wine with more than 300g sugar per litre and has intense flavours of caramel, dried fruit and spice.

The Montegrossi property was once part of the legendary Baron Ricasoli estate. Descendent of the Ricasoli family Marco Ricasoli Fridolfi is the current proprietor. The estate is now considered one of the finest in the zone.

 

"Like nectar, this is thick and pure, yet almost weightless as it layers the apricot, honey and burnt molasses flavors effortlessly from start to finish. Shows amazing harmony, and the flavors last long after there is no liquid on the palate. Drink now through 2025. 208 cases made." - Wine Spectator
