We pass on the typical Bianco Pisano di San Torpè Vin Santo Doc.
Kissing the hand: a chivalrous gesture that smells of kindness from other times, just like our Vin Santo.
One of the few wines still made "the old-fashioned way", Baciamano boasts the proper denomination of the authentic Tuscan Doc, Bianco Pisano di San Torpè Vin Santo.
The characteristic sweetness of this particular wine is due to the quality of the Trebbiano grapes and to the long and meticulous process which begins in the vineyard, seizing on all the warmth of the autumn sun in the bunches, and is completed after six years of maturation in the cellar.
The long process of drying and maturation
After about a month of drying in the vineyard, the bunches reach the vinsantaia in October where the drying phase continues for another two months. The residual water evaporates and the sugars are concentrated even more. Subsequently, the Vin Santo is kept in the typical Tuscan barrel for the first four years in a controlled temperature environment. Two years of ageing in the bottle follow, at the end of which the Vin Santo takes on its characteristic bright coppery yellow colour and is finally ready to be tasted.
A bottle of our Vin Santo contains the fruit of a precious and slow work; an authentic pleasure to be savoured with Tuscan Cantucci, as per tradition, or in combination with blue cheeses, in a mutual exaltation of aromas and flavours.
