    Castello di Brolio Vinsanto 2010

        98 pts Wine Advocate!
           
              BUY


How often to you see a 98 pt wine for $45?  After dinner dessert wines, while popular in Europe are generally absent from dinner tables in America. We think that is a missed opportunity to celebrate the end of a great meal and to impress everyone with your good taste.  Now you might know that dessert wines can reach hundreds of dollars a bottle, so we thought you might want to take advantage of this great wine and honestly you can't get much better than 98pts 

Made from partially raisined grapes, followed by light crushing and slow fermentation in small oak barrels and a years-long ageing. The yield is very low, but the reward is superb! We tend to associate Vin Santo to the Tuscan biscotti traditional food pairing, but it is excellent with ripe cheeses, or creamy, rich desserts. It can be considered a dessert on its own, what we call in Italy a Vino di Meditazione: an intense, rich-textured beverage to consume lazily and introspectively after a meal. 



To really bring the house down, pair your Vinsanto with this!
