This traditional Tuscan wine is a sweet wine from Malvasìa grapes, born from a selection of the best bunches left to dry by arranging the "penzoli" (perfect bunches with twigs), in a dry room for about 3 months.

In December before Christmas (hence the name Vin Santo) it is vinified by pressing and then placed in 100-liter kegs, small chestnut or cypress wood barrels. These small containers are then closed with cement, where the wine remains to mature for at least three years in an environment subject to continuous changes in temperature, which favor the formation of the typical aromas and flavors of vin santo.

This which today is a real Tuscan excellence, in the past was the so-called "Welcome Glass" that the farmers offered their guests on the farmyard.

  • MANUFACTURING COMPANY:

Santo Stefano farm

  • TASTING NOTES:

Amber yellow with golden reflections, rich and complex on the nose with notes of raisins, dried figs, but also honey and walnut. With a long taste-olfactory persistence, the soft sensations are well balanced by the acidity.

  • PAIRINGS:

Well paired with dry pastries, mascarpone cream or cat's tongue, my advice is to try it with a good blue cheese from Mugello.
