This is the end of a long line of Monsanto Vin Santos as the estate has chosen to move to the Sangiovese based Occhio di Pernice style of Vin Santo. I can’t wait to try theirs! Quite oxidative at first with a rich layered caramel, toffee and burnt marshmallow nose. With air nuanced notes of dried apricot, toasted pine nuts and bitter orange peel emerge adding real depth and complexity to the nose. On the palate this is big, thick and unctuous with huge sugars and acids giving this very sweet wine excellent balance. The flavors tend to the bitter end of the spectrum with notes of coffee, apricot pit, and burnt orange peel alleviating some of the unrelenting sweetness of the wine and then there’s a nice spicy note on the backend that shakes everything up and eases the mid-palate tension. The finish is long and quite evolved with notes of tobacco, molasses and dried figs. A powerful and complex Vin Santo. 93pts
