San Felice Il Grigio Vin Santo ‘In Pincis’ (37.5cl) 2007
Grapes are sourced form the 2 hectare Il Vignone vineyard, at 350-400m above sea level. The grape bunches are picked and laid out to dry on mats called 'paglie'. They are pressed in December / January. The must ferments then age 7-8 years in small 225l French oak caratelli, followed by a further 12 months in bottle.
Intense aromas of roasted coffee, dates, dried figs, and honey. Richly flavoured and extraordinarily complex with layers of both sweet and savoury characters - walnut, treacle, honey and smoky notes combined with concentrated dried fruits. Heady and ethereal, yet reatining freshness and vibrancy.
The classic "vino da meditazione", for sipping at meal's end with petit fours and semi-sweet chocolate cakes.
