A truly sensational dessert wine from Castagnoli. The grapes (90% Malvasia Lunga del Chianti & 10% Trebbiano Toscano) were selected and harvested from two of their best individual vineyards, then pre dried on straw mats for 5 months prior to fermentation. The wine was then aged in barrel for 6 years before blending to produce the final assemblage, then bottle aged for a further 6 months prior to release.

I've stocked Castagnoli's superb Chiantis for several years now and was so impressed with this wine. Initial flavours of honey, apricots and vanilla with hazel nut on the amazingly long finish. This wine is beautiful!
