This typical and traditional Tuscan dessert wine is extremely rare because it is produced in small quantities. Its quality has been recognised by the creation of the appellation DOC Vinsanto del Chianti. As ancient tradition requires, the best grapes native to Tuscany are harvested, carefully selected and left to ripen and then wither, hanging up in a well aerated room, for about 4 months. The quantity may be limited but the quality is excellent thanks to the care taken by the grower.
