 Producer’s Notes

Typical traditional Tuscan wine produced from Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes, harvested then dried on straw mats in the old traditional way in order to increase the sugar concentration. After pressing, fermentation and slow aging (at least 5 years) take place in caratelli, 100 litre barrels, on the madre, a compound of yeast and bacteria residues kept from year to year which has a significant effect on the characteristics of the Vin Santo.

Serving suggestions: Traditional accompaniment to cantucci (dry Tuscan biscuits made with almonds and honey). Generally marries well with dry cakes and biscuits. Not too sweet, it is also a novel match for blue-veined cheeses.
