Farnito Vinsanto del Chianti 1999 D.O.C.
Minimum 70% of Trebbiano Toscano and Malvasia and maximum 30% of other white grape varietals.
The harvested grapes are dried in wooden boxes then slowly barrel fermented during the winter months.
Part of the wine was aged in traditional “caratelli”, small barrels made of chestnut, the other part was aged in oak barrels, all for a total of 16 years. These barrels were housed among our various estates.
In temperature controlled underground cellar.
Golden yellow with bronze hues.
Intense and complex with hints of apricot and peach jam, walnut, and typical Malvasia aromatics.
A good balance between the complex, intense balsamic fragrances, the alcohol and the sweetness. Long and persistent.
Can be served as a dessert wine, an aperitif or in accompaniment to strong cheeses such as Pecorino or Gorgonzola piccante. Excellent also by itself as a “meditation” wine.
