    Vin Santo del Chianti Classico DOC 2009

    The grapes for one of the most elegant and ethereal vin santo in Chianti Classico are dried before being pressed and then sealed in barrels for nine years. Paolo de Marchi calls it "lazy winemaking" and admits, "The blending process is actually the most challenging part because each barrel is different and after tasting 10 barrels, palate fatigue sets in."

    The result is a very elegant and pure Vin Santo that has notes of candied fruit, honey and sweet spices. The balance between sweetness and acidity keeps the wine light, lively and refreshing, and it has a smoky edge on the finish. This is a great Vin Santo, and although it has over 200g/l of residual sugar, it is surprisingly light, refreshing and easy to drink. SUPERIORE.DE

    "A fantastic vin santo with toffee, burnt-caramel, dried-orange and light coffee character. It’s full-bodied and very, very sweet, yet remains agile and bright. Drink and enjoy." James Suckling

    "The 2009 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico is so beautiful. Orange confit, dried figs, caramel, hazelnut and honeyed flavors abound. Medium in body, with striking depth and texture. It's a classic Vin Santo from white grapes, as well as a reference-point for the region. It is at once rich, but not at all heavy." Vinous
