Wine AdvocateThe 2003 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico presents an intriguing combination of the classic Vin Santo aromas and flavors (almonds, orange peel, burnt sugar, crushed flowers) with an additional level of textural richness that is most likely the result of the torrid vintage. This is a beautiful, delineated wine from start to finish. The 2003 Vin Santo is 55% Malvasia, 25% Trebbiano and 20% Sangiovese that spent 7 years in small, traditional casks. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2018.

Wine SpectatorConcentrated flavors of caramel, dried apricot, quince paste, roasted walnut and smoke pervade this ripe, powerful sweetie. Brisk, yet balanced toward the alcohol. Moderate length. Drink now through 2015.
