Made from Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes harvested in October and left to dry until early February, Castello di Monsanto’s Vinsanto is produced according to strict traditions. The must is stored for a decade in small casks, which are exposed to the elements in the Vinsantaia throughout summer and winter. No technological analysis is performed – all that’s required is infinite passion for a great Chianti tradition. This sweet wine is not just for desserts, its acidic structure gives an outstanding elegance and persistence, enabling it to stand up to unusual food pairings.
Maturazione o invecchiamento12 years in 50 and 100 litre casks made from chestnut, oak, and cherry wood.
Ageing One year of bottle aging
The 2007 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico La Chimera opens to a dark amber color and thick layers of glycerin that move in thick streaks down the side of the glass. It shows tertiary tones of burnt butter, toasted almond and candied fruit. This Vin Santo is very caramelized in personality with a chewy thickness that makes it a meal on its own, or an ideal pairing partner to an after-dinner cigar.
