Winemaker's Notes

Golden yellow, with coppery highlights. Peach, apricot, pineapple and tropical fruit aromas. There is consistency on the palate, softness and elegance nicely structured by the oak barrels. This is a wine with great balance, favorable acidity and a well-harmonized residual sugar. Long in the mouth.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2003 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico presents an intriguing combination of the classic Vin Santo aromas and flavors (almonds, orange peel, burnt sugar, crushed flowers) with an additional level of textural richness that is most likely the result of the torrid vintage. This is a beautiful, delineated wine from start to finish. The 2003 Vin Santo is 55% Malvasia, 25% Trebbiano and 20% Sangiovese that spent 7 years in small, traditional casks. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2018."
