Santa Vittoria Valdichiana Vin Santo
Vin Santo Valdichiana DOC
Grapes Trebbiano (60%), Malvasia (20%), Grechetto (20%)
Some bunches are hung from the ceiling to dry, others dry on ventilated trays. Botrytis is encouraged during the drying process which means great vigilance is needed to make sure nothing goes wrong, humidity especially must be monitored in the drying rooms, the windows are opened during the day and closed at night.
The grapes are dried for approximately 4 months. After pressing the must is fermented in small barrels and when the fermentation has finished, the barrels are sealed with wax and left for 5 years.
This is the signature product of Santa Vittoria and it is made traditionally from Trebbiano (60%), Malvasia (20%) and Grechetto (20%). The vineyards are south facing and planted ‘single spur’ at a density of 3800 plants per hectare.
Olorosso and nut on the nose, caramel, honey and toffee flavours run deep through this wine. Production 2000 (37.5cl) bottles. 14.5%
