    Winemaker's Notes:

    Gold yellow, with coppery highlights. Scents of peach, apricot, ripe pineapple (tropical fruit). The palate demonstrates considerable weight, velvety smoothness, and elegant fruit nicely married to the oak. The finish is satisfyingly lengthy.

    "Meditation" or sipping wine to be enjoyed with hard cheeses, including sharp and herbed varieties.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Fresh, focused and complex, this Vin Santo is off-dry, with caramel, iodine, walnut and leather notes. Dried fig and orange peel accents join in as this turns smoky on the lingering aftertaste. Balanced and harmonious. Drink now through 2018.

    The 2001 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico is a reference point wine that artfully balances a need for being contemporary while refusing to fall prey to the more modernist tendencies that favor sheer concentration above all else. The stunning bouquet alone is worth the price of admisssion. Dried figs, plums, prune, cinnamon, licorice and dried flowers are woven together in a fabric of unmistakable class. Slightly oxidative notes add complexity and inner sweetness, but this remains a restrained, mid-weight style of Vin Santo that in 2001 reaches an extraordinary level of finesse. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2021.

    Bright golden amber. Knockout nose presents a smorgasbord of ripe peach, dried apricot, vanilla, marzipan, white chocolate and dried herb aromas. Then surprisingly light and linear given the opulent aromas, with noteworthy precision to the ripe peach, citrus, herb and white chocolate flavors. Finishes very smooth and long but with an obvious alcoholic warmth. Though I'm not sure this is as successful as the great Vin Santos made here in '97 or '98, this is still excellent, and its nose alone merits 95 points.
