Isole e Olena, 2006 Isole e Olena Vin Santo (375ml)

"The 2006 Vin Santo is quite powerful and viscous in the glass, perhaps a bit more so than is the norm. An exotic mélange of dried fig, honey, sage, baking spices and sweet herbs are all thrust forward. This is one of the most intense Vin Santos I can remember tasting at Isole e Olena. The 220 grams of residual sugar are clearly felt in the wine's heft, yet all the elements are in the right place."

Isole e Olena, 2006 Isole e Olena Vin Santo (375ml)

"65% Malvasia, 35% Trebbiano Toscano. Light golden brown sienna. Spicy apricot but also some dried grasses and chamomile. Intensely sweet and intensely fresh. Brilliant harmony and length. Viscous but so full of life and baked apple and apricot fruit. Gorgeous and deliciously youthful."

Isole e Olena

65% Malvasia del Chianti, 35% Trebbiano

Estate-grown, hand-harvested grapes are dried for 3-5 months before pressing, after which the must is racked into ‘caratelli’ (small barrels of varying composition) where it ferments and ages for five years before bottling. The wine remains on the ‘madre’ or starter culture for the entire aging/fermenting period, during which time it is neither racked nor filtered. The resulting wine comprises only 12-15% of the initial yield.
