A truly spectacular Vin Santo! Outstanding concentration, very rich, unctuous, thick with extract. Very fresh tasting, the richness is pure and not cloying at all, evidence of its superb balance. The finish is a mile long. You can pair it with cheeses or with dessert, but there is really no need. This is complete. Revel in its deliciousness with each sip. Galloni's high praise still underrates this fabulous Vin Santo. 17% alc. One of the greatest Vin Santos made by Felsina.

"Felsina's 2000 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico is a reference-point wine for the region. This rich Vin Santo flows onto the palate with coconut, spices, maple syrup and baking spices. The wine remains exquisitely balanced and deft, with a long, refined finish. For its Vin Santo, the estate uses the traditional Trebbiano and Malvasia, along with 20% Sangiovese, all of which is dried on mats until February of the following year when the fruit is vinified. The wine spent a total of seven years in 50 and 100 liter barrels. This is a Vin Santo of the highest level. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2020." 93/100 Antonio Galloni, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
