Vinification

Vinification

The vintage for Vinsanto is hand-made and with a particular care in order to select the best and healthiest grapes. The grapes are laid in dry and airy rooms for a two month period in order to make them dry free from any mould aggressions. After this period, the dried grapes are pressed gently. The must obtained is poured in little barrels usually called “caratelli” for fermentation, placed in mansard rooms where the fermentation is alternated (because of the exposure to varying temperatures – hot in the summer, cool in the winter). This particular process makes it possible for the fermentation to last as long as three years.

Visual Analysis

Visual Analysis

Amber-colored, with orange hues.

Olfactory Analysis

Olfactory Analysis

Intense, the alcoholic tones, even if strong, do not cover the rich bouquet in which we can recognize honey notes of acacia, raisin and walnut.

Gustatory Analysis

Gustatory Analysis

Dense, oily, explicitly sweet, with notes of dried fruits (apricot especially) and of acacia honey, finishing in a pleasant bitter taste that recalls almond. Extraordinary aftertaste.
