Almost 100% Malvasia di Toscana
The Castello di Brolio Vin Santo, true to tradition, expresses one of the “historic” grapes of the area, Malvasia del Chianti. Its production method also stays true to tradition.
Notes on the method of production
The grapes destined for Vin Santo are gathered late in the harvest, at the point at which the sugar content is high enough to sustain the long ageing process that this wine undergoes. The bunches are hung and left to dry partially for several months. The must obtained from light crushing ferments slowly and is then placed in 225-litre half-barriques of oak.
6,500 bottles (of 0.375 Liters) Castello di Brolio Vin Santo
The perfect ripening of the grapes has gone through a normal seasoning trend typical from the continental climate experienced in the Chianti region with rainy Spring and hot summer.
The Malvasia grapes were harvested one week in advance, beginning in early October and ending twelve days later.
Intense golden-yellow, delicate hints of fruits, elegant nose and velvety savours with a long lasting taste.
