Santovino is a clever nod to the Vin Santo style which this wine emulates. It’s an amazing value! Apricot and spice aromas waft from the glass of this racy Vin Santo aka Holy wine. Traditionally left to ferment until around Easter it was then served at Mass. Lucky Italians! It now is aged at least 3 years in barrel after the semi-dried grapes are crushed and fermented. The involved and interesting flavours include strong tea, almond and dried black currant. This medium-bodied gem ends on a sweet and nutty note. Serve well chilled. Score: 3½ (out of 5) Source: Vic Harradine, winecurrent.com
