Fèlsina Vin Santo Chianti Classico 6 Bottle Max Italy White 2000
Yellow gold color in the glass with aromas of roasted nuts, caramel and a bit of nail polish remover. On the palate this was rich and thick but not too much going on beyond the nuttiness and well balanced acid to sweetness. This does have a good structure and so I'm hoping that time will unlock more secondary flavors. I wont touch another bottle for at least five years.
Great with biscotti to dip
Three and a half glasses

This dessert wine comes from the Chianti Classico zone of Tuscany. I'ts made by first air-drying the grapes for 7 months. Then there's fermentation in small casks for 7 years. The result is a nutty sultan raisined peach dessert wine that's sweet but balanced.
Felsina's 2000 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico is a reference-point wine for the region. This rich Vin Santo flows onto the palate with coconut, spices, maple syrup and baking spices. The wine remains exquisitely balanced and deft, with a long, refined finish. For its Vin Santo, the estate uses the traditional Trebbiano and Malvasia, along with 20% Sangiovese, all of which is dried on mats until February of the following year when the fruit is vinified. The wine spent a total of seven years in 50 and 100 liter barrels. This is a Vin Santo of the highest level. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2020. Aromas of dried papaya, nuts and light caramel. Medium-bodied and medium sweet, with a clean, balanced palate and a nutty aftertaste. Drink now. 1,800 cases made. -JS
