CHARACTERISTICS OF THE VINSANTO
Golden amber, spices canforate in the nose, soft and sensual touch to the language, the “Luigi Basilio Chiostri 1995” first fills the imagination, then the mouth and finally go to melt into a warm embrace throughout the body. The wooden spiciness, slightly tannic, remind the drinker, the long passing in the kegs and a not less demanding period in the glass has rounded them in velvet soft of light.
The almond biscuits are not the only way to enjoy this nectar, which can be meditated alone or even at end meal, in a slow basking in with sweets and dried fruit. Do not underestimate its combination with Tuscan seasoned pecorino and liver pate.
His great balance makes a wine that does not dominate neither the palate neither the table but instead is a perfect and pleasant companion of many dishes, especially red meat, game, cheese and spicy, but not only, with a glass hot and sharp that increases in value.
