2008 Fontodi Vin Santo 375ml image

A real treasure Vin Santo is made by many wine producers in Tuscany but most of this wine never leaves the winery. This "Holy Wine" is an ancient wine that was probably first made in the 14th century. Traditionally it is made from Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes but it can be made from any varietal as Manetti uses Sangiovese. The grapes are hand picked and hung from the rafters of a well-ventilated room. Once dried, the grapes are pressed and the juice is poured into caratelli for fermentation. Caratelli are small cigar-shaped barrels. After the initial fermentation the caratelli are sealed and placed under the roof of the winery, sometimes as long as ten years. The wine develops a deep golden or amber color, and a sweet, often nutty, taste.
