Wine Description:
Volpaia Vin Santo del Chianti Classico is a sweet wine produced by the renowned Volpaia winery in the Chianti Classico appellation of Tuscany, Italy. The grapes used to make this wine are grown in the vineyards surrounding the medieval village of Volpaia, which sits at an altitude of 1,640 feet above sea level. The wine is made using the traditional method of drying the grapes on straw mats before pressing, which concentrates the sugars and flavors. The resulting wine is rich and complex, with notes of honey, dried fruit, and caramel. It is a perfect dessert wine to pair with biscotti or cheese.
