Volpaia Vin Santo del Chianti Clabico 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

94 points Wine Enthusiast: Volpaia is the proud author of one of Chianti Classico’s most enjoyable dessert wines. This luscious Vin Santo (a blend of Trebbiano and Malvasia aged in small barrels called caratelli) is velvety soft and decadent with lingering tones of orange zest, resin, dried ginger, candied fruit and a tiny hint of musk. Alcohol 16.0%. (12/15/11)
