Vinsanto del Chianti Classico Doc

Dedicated to Saint Andrew Corsini, a Carmelite and Bishop of Fiesole who was recognized as a saint by Boniface VIII. An old and rare wine made from selected Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes. The grapes are left to wither for three months on trellises before pressing. According to tradition, the must ferments for five years on its lees in sealed barrels called caratelli. Only the best grapes are aged for an additional five years before being bottled.

Vinsanto is the pinnacle of an oral tradition that has been handed down, generation to generation, through the centuries. When well done, it unequivocally represents the best of the farm.

Little science and much tradition is used to produce this rare monument of Chianti Classico, making it a precursor to natural wines.


Tasting and pairing notes: 
Dark amber, almost mahogany, the nose is full of candied fruit, citrus, orange blossom honey and yellow flowers but also chestnut, humus and a little smoky note, which enriches the scene. Fruity notes of dates and spices are released with the increase in temperature, The mouth is sweet with grace and clarity, thanks to the orange freshness that balances the sip. Impressive persistence.
