2006 Vin Santo Sant`Antimo reserva 2006 500ml
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 (8 or 9 years) take place in Caratelli, 100 litre (27 US Gallons) barrels, on the "madre", a compound of yeasts and bacteria kept from year to year, which has a significant effect on the characteristics of the Vin Santo.
Amber in colour, intense bouquet with notes of dried apricot, bitter almond and honey. Neither too sweet nor too dry, its good acidity make it a versatile wine to accompany many kinds of food.
