The Vinsanto del Chianti Classico DOC by Tenute Marchese Antinori is presented in dark amber with golden reflections. On the nose, the vinsanto delights with the characteristic sweet aromas of dried fruit, hazelnuts, chestnuts and honey with notes of citrus fruit in the background. Full-bodied on the palate, soft as honey, carried by a pleasant acidity that gives it freshness. Long lasting finish, wonderfully aromatic and sweet.
Vinification of the Vinsanto del Chianti CLassico DOC by Tenute Marchese Antinori
The grapes for this historic dessert wine come exclusively from the Antinori wineries of the Chianti Classico. The harvest is very careful and selective, the grapes are transported in small boxes and laid out manually on the specially designed straw mats in the traditional drying room of Tenuta Tignanello. When the natural dehydration is complete, the grapes are pressed very gently to maintain the aromatic and organoleptic properties unchanged. The must thus obtained is immediately filled into the typical Caratelli barrels, which are made of different woods and have a capacity of between 50 and 200 l. Here the wine undergoes its slow and long alcoholic fermentation, which is then interrupted. The wines are then aged in the various small barrels for a total of 3 years, then brought together and finally bottled.
Vinsanto has been proven to be produced in Tuscany since the Middle Ages and is considered a genuine regional speciality. The Antinori family has also always produced it. The first vintage of today's Vinsanto Tenute Marchese Antinori was 1987. It is produced in limited quantities.
