This pale, orange 'vin santo' has a gorgeous nose of orange rind, walnut, honey, dried fig/apricot and pumpkin spice....

Excellent Vin Santo from the tiny DOC of Pomino in the northeast of Toscana. Pomino is one of 4 wine areas of Tuscany delineated by the Bando (edict) of Cosimo III de Medici in 1716. Vin Santo is a passito specialty typically made with Trebbianno Toscana and/or Malvasia Bianca Lunga. Here the dominant player in Pomino, the venerable Frescobaldi house, has crafted a delicious dessert wine that stays this side of too sweet, with balancing acidity. Complex, with apricots, marmalade, honey, fig and candied fruit. Excellent length. Very pretty indeed. Well worth the price. Dec. 2017.
