Avignonesi Vin Santo di Montepulciano Occhio di Pernice

This full-bodied, thick like molasses, amber colored dessert wine displays a mix of smoke-tinged raisins, dried figs and red fruit with hints of caramel and spiced apple. Immensely rich yet vibrant, the flavors and aromas grow and persist on the expressive and long finish.

100% Prugnolo Gentile). The grapes were selected from 10-35 year old vines planted in the deep, calcareous, clay and sandy soils of Le Capezzine. Over the next six months, the fruit slowly dehydrated in the appassitoio (a large, dark, airy loft) on straw mats. The desiccated grapes were pressed and the must naturally fermented in caratelli – 50 liter Slavonian oak casks. The caratelli are filled to 9/10 of their volume with 43 liters of must, and two liters of mother – an old, indigenous yeast, unique to Avignonesi, which thrives in the must’s high sugar content. Following fermentation, each caratelli was sealed with wax and the wine aged for 10 years.
