Vin Santo is made by hand harvesting grapes, in this case Trebbiano, Malvasia & Vernaccia, and drying them in a ‘Vinsantaia’ for 4 to 5 months. The must is then transferred to small barrels where it is left to ferment & age for a number of years before bottling. The wine has a remarkable intensity & length with dried fruit, vanilla, honey, spices & wonderful acidity.

Vin Santo or Vino Santo (holy wine) is a style of Italian dessert wine. Traditional in Tuscany, these wines are often made from white grape varieties such as Trebbiano and Malvasia, though Sangiovese may be used to produce a rosé style known as Occhio di Pernice or eye of the partridge. The wines may accurately be described as straw wines since they are most often produced by drying the freshly harvested grapes on straw mats in a warm and well ventilated area of the house. Though technically a dessert wine, the wines can vary in sweetness levels from bone dry (like a Fino Sherry) to extremely sweet. While the style is believed to have originated in Tuscany, examples of Vin Santo can be found throughout Italy and is an authorized style of wine for several Denominazione di origine controllata (DOCs) and Indicazione geografica tipica (IGTs).
