SWEET WINES: RICH, INTENSE STYLES

Rich, intense sweet wines - VIN SANTO, Capezzana. Tuscany, Italy (Half Bottle)

2009 VIN SANTO, Capezzana. Tuscany, Italy (Half Bottle)

Alcohol Percentage: 13.5%
Area: Capezzana is in the Carmignano region, 24km's north west of Florence. The area is distinct from neighbouring Chianti, having a slightly warmer climate, especially in autumn, making for a slightly riper style than that of Chianti Classico
Grape Variety: 90% Trebbiano; 10% San Colombano; dried on straw mats for three months and then aged for five years in small chestnut barrels ('caratelli'). (260g/l residual sugar)
Producer: The gorgeous 100 hectare Capezzana estate has been owned by the Contini Bonacossi family for centuries. Barco Reale means 'royal palace' and refers to the property of the Medici Grand Dukes, who were (unsurprisingly) previous owners. This is one of the great examples of a very traditional wine style
Cellar Potential: Already mature but will hold for many years
Food Match: Famously good served simply with cantucci, local almond biscuits. But also a fine foil for nuts, dried fruit or a bakewell tart
