Vin Santo Wine Information

Vin Santo, otherwise known as, Vino Santo (holy wine) is a style of Italian dessert wine. Traditional in Tuscany, these wines are often made from white grape varieties such as Trebbiano and Malvasia, though Sangiovese may be used to produce a rosé style wine. Vin Santo may also be described as straw wines since they are often produced by drying the freshly harvested grapes on straw mats in a warm and well ventilated area. Though technically a dessert wine, Vin Santo can vary in sweetness levels from extremely sweet to bone dry.
