2004 Rocca di Montegrossi Vin Santo (375ml)

SKU #1115554 98 points Wine Spectator

 Like nectar, this is thick and pure, yet almost weightless as it layers the apricot, honey and burnt molasses flavors effortlessly from start to finish. Shows amazing harmony, and the flavors last long after there is no liquid on the palate. Drink now through 2025. 208 cases made.  (10/2012)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2004 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico is another in a series of beautiful, exotic sweet wines from Rocca di Montegrossi. It is a huge wine bursting with dried figs, molasses, burnt sugar, spices and dried flowers, all of which come together in a dense, full-throttle style. Expressive aromatics are woven throughout, which keep the wine fresh and vibrant. The estate’s 2004 Vin Santo was made from 95% Malvasia and 5% Canaiolo Nero. The fruit was dried for three months, and the wine spent 5 years and 7 months in small barrels of oak, cherry and mulberry. Residual sugar was a whopping 388 grams. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2024.

From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages.
