Castello di Brolio Vin Santo, Vinsanto del Chianti Classico Doc

The grapes destined for Vin Santo are gathered late in the harvest, at the point at which the sugar content is high enough to sustain the long ageing process that this wine undergoes. The bunches are hung and left to dry partially for several months. The must, obtained from light crushing, ferments slowly and ages at least seven years in small oak casks.

Tasting notes

Amber yellow color. To the nose, hints of hazelnut cream, almonds and dried fig. The taste is soft, sweet, warm and enveloping. The aftertaste is long and complex with a finish that brings back to the olfactory sensations.
