Vinsanto is a wine with ancient roots indeed in Tuscany, and Pomino has been producing it since the 19th century. Made from Trebbiano, Malvasia toscana and the local variety to the traditional Tuscan Vin Santo, the San Colombano, Pomino Vinsanto merits enjoyment all by itself as a "vino da meditazione", but enjoy it as well with mixed nuts and dried fruits.
VINTAGE REPORT After a fluctuating growing season that required attentive vineyard supervision, particularly in certain areas, this year's was a fine harvest indeed. The superb quality of the grapes on Frescobaldi's various estates was a reward for careful the work and good management decisions throughout the season. In vineyards characterised by deep, well-drained soils, special attention was given to the vines with a generous leaf pulling process and as a result, the grapes are in very good condition.
GRAPE VARIETIES Trebbiano, Malvasia Toscana and San Colombano
TASTING NOTES A rich, deep amber announces this Vinsanto, impressive as well for its luminosity. The nose releases an ultra-complex aromatic mosaic composed of raisin, honey, and dried fruits such as fig and prune, complemented by spicy notes of vanilla and roasted espresso bean. It is velvet smooth in the mouth, sapid, and well balanced. The palate offers further aromatic complexity as it adds toasty impressions of almond, hazelnut, and dried fruit, along with a judicious acidity that beautifully balances the wine's sweetness. A very lengthy, elegant finish leaves the mouth remarkably dry and clean.
SERVING SUGGESTIONS As an aperitif with foie gras, pastries and dried nuts (hazelnuts, almonds).
