The Vinsanto is made up of 50% Trebbiano Toscano and 50% of Malvasia del Chianti. After the harvest, the selected grapes are dried on rush mattings until the end of January. After the start of the fermentation the must is placed in 55- and 110-litre oaken half-barriques where it matures for a period of 12 years with a series of alternating phases of fermentation.

Wine SpectatorA sleek, defined version, with penetrating fig, walnut and burnt molasses flavors heightened by bracing acidity. Balanced, this lingers with a walnut edge on the finish. Drink now through 2018. 400 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastMade with a blend of 50% Trebbiano and 50% Malvasia, this delivers aromas of Tuscan almond cookies, citrus and dried apricot. The concentrated palate offers layers of candied nectarine zest, fig and toasted almond. Pair it with seasoned cheeses or cantucci.
