DESRIZIONE:
Villa Maisano's Vinsanto, produced in the heart of Chianti Classico, is one of the best versions of this jewel in the crown of traditional Tuscan winemaking. Sophisticated techniques are used to bring out the best in this wine: the white grapes are dried at length on rush mats in well-aired rooms, and then pressed; the resulting must is placed in small, sealed oak barrels called "caratelli" and aged for 4 years. During this period the wine undergoes a series of biological processes to become the wonderful Villa Maisano Vinsanto.
