Winemaking The grapes are harvested and the bunches are then hung up to dry for about 2 months in well-ventilated rooms. The carefully selected dried grapes are pressed and the must is put into small oak barrels not filled to the top to allow oxidation to occur. The barrels are sealed airtight and the Vin Santo is left to ferment and age in the same barrel for a period of about 5 years.Colour: Golden yellow with traces of amber.
Serve: Well chilled as an aperitif or with desserts and mature cheese.
Taste: A nose of toffees and caramel through to a palate with balanced sweetness and warm alcohol on the finish.
