Made from 60% Malvasia and 40% Trebbiano, the grapes used in the wine are harvested from various estate vineyards in Castellina in Chianti. After harvest, the grapes are dried and fermentation is carried out slowly in small oak barrels known as caratelli. It is in these barrels that the wine will age for five additional years. Brilliant amber in color, this wine offers seductive, layered aromas of toasted almonds, dried apricot, dates, toffee and spice cake. On the palate, it shows incredible balance, and continues to evolve into a toasty, pleasant finish. This esquisite dessert wine is perfect on its own or served with biscotti and fruit tarts. 16% abv.
