• Vin Santo Sant'Antimo Riserva

    Typical traditional Tuscan wine produced from Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes, harvested, then dried on straw mats in the old traditional way, in order to increase the sugar concentration.

    After pressing, fermentation and slow aging (8 or 9 years) take place in Caratelli, 100 litre (27 US Gallons) barrels, on the "madre", a compound of yeasts and bacteria kept from year to year, which has a significant effect on the characteristics of the Vin Santo.
