Il Santo Zari Dino 2003

External Review by Astor Wines & Spirits:

Just like a Vin Santo except it's not aged as long as Vin Santo and therefore cannot have "Vin Santo" on the label. A dessert wine where the grapes are left to dry through the winter after harvest before pressing. Sweet on the palate with, naturally, a dried fruit characteristic - dried sultans, prunes and spice. Drink with a light chill and enjoy with biscotti as is done in Italy.

Il Santo:
Il Santo is a vineyard run by the Turchi family, located in the hills of Chianti Classico between Florence and Siena, Italy. A group of restored farmhouses dating back to the 12th century are available as guest houses, with views of the vineyards and olive groves. The only wine produced at the estate is a traditional Chianti Classico red.

<p>From Tuscany, Italy, this red dessert wine is a blend of Malvasia Bianca and Trebbiano Toscana grapes which are dried through the winter after harvest before pressing.</p>
