Vin Santo is a difficult and time consuming wine to make and it doesn’t come in big litre bottles, if it does, then is not worth drinking it.
The Vin Santo, the name Vin Santo literally translates as to saint wine, is like any other Italian passito, obtained from drying Sangiovese grapes and then vinified them in small barrels, made from cedar wood and called caratelli, and forgotten under the attics for several years.
San Jacopo Vin Santo is a great wine, similar to a sherry or a Madeira, bronze, with a very complex nose with apricots and orange peels, honey, and with an amazing palate.
Often Vin Santo is accompanied with almond cantuccini biscuits and generally dried biscuits, but it is also a fantastic accompaniment to blue cheese or to be drunk on its own at the end of the meal
