Vin Santo di Montepulciano (Tuscany) A monumental wine, of extraordinary elegance and absolute magnificence. Vin Santo di Montepulciano Occhio di Pernice shows a deep mahogany color and nuances of mahogany, impenetrable to light. The nose reveals very intense aromas, clean, pleasing, refined, elegant, incredibly endless and an impressive opening of plum jam, fig jam and black cherry jam followed by an extraordinary and precise aromatic sequence of blackberry jam, vanilla, tobacco, coffee, cinnamon, cinchona, caramel, orange marmalade, licorice, chocolate, honey, nail polish and rhubarb. The mouth has perfect correspondence to the nose, a velvety and sweet attack, very smooth and think, perfectly balanced by alcohol and by a very pleasing crispness, full body, very intense flavors, extraordinarily agreeable and complex. The finish is very persistent, virtually endless, with very long and endless flavors of blackberry jam, black cherry jam, plum jam, fig jam and honey.
