Vin Santo Chianti Classico Cortine DOCG

Vinsanto has ancient roots and there are many credited versions on the origin of the name; for us there is no doubt: the name comes from its use during religious ceremonies.
According to an unbroken tradition, even today our bottles are produced according to traditional methods and are placed on the market only after meeting the liturgical requirements of the Cathedral Chapter.
This is the vinsanto of the Cathedral of Florence.

Like the Vin Santo Pieve, this Vin Santo Cortine shares, the process and place of drying the grapes, but obviously with grapes only from the historic Cortine vineyards, where along with a base of Trebbiano Toscano grapes of Malvasia compete together, which together with a more thorough drying process, lead to a slightly sweeter product and a fuller, rounder taste on the palate.
