Opinions about wine differ greatly as the experience is subjective. You may find it helpful to compare this critical evaluation of the wine with mine as well as your own:
|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|
