User Reviews for Sigalas Vinsanto Santorini

Winemaker's Notes:

Vinsanto is the most genuine descendant of the "passon oinon", as the sun-dried wines were called in antiquity. During the Middle Ages, the ancient volcanic Thira was renamed as Santo Erini (Santorini) and thus the wine took the name Vino Santo (Vinsanto) thus declaring its place of origin. Therefore, the name of this wine is a "historical name of appelation", one of the very few still in existence.

Tasting Notes:

Bright orange-golden color. Rich and complex aroma with dominant scents of dried and sugared fruits. Exquisite structure, acidity and finesse, with a strong aftertaste.
