Vin San Laurentino Vino Dulce by Castello di Bossi is an overwhelmingly noble sweet wine from the famous Italian wine region of Tuscany. This very special 'Dulce' is made from two classic Italian grape varieties, namely 50% of the blue grape variety Sangiovese and 50% of the white grape variety Trebbiano. The grapes for this unique sweet wine come from vineyards 350 meters above sea level, where the soil consists of yellow and gray clay, stones and minerals.
The grapes for the Castello di Bossi Vin San Laurentino Vino Dulce are harvested in August and dried before being pressed after 5 months. The vinification of the Vin San Laurentino Vino Dulce traditionally takes place with an aging of 8 years (!!) in small, 25 liter oak barrels. Due to the late pressing and the long-term maturation process, an amber, gold-coloured wine with a beautiful cream-like structure, a lot of depth and a very rich taste, but also with great complexity is the result.
The Vin San Laurentino Vino Dulce has aromas of toffee, caramel, burned sugar and dried fruit. The smell and taste of this very special noble sweet Tuscan wine is in one word 'overwhelming'. The Vin San Laurentino Vino Dulce from Castello di Bossi is recommended with foie gras or creme brulee or rich creamy cheeses and soft blue cheese. This noble sweet wine can be cellared for years to come.
The wine comes in a matching, beautiful gift box and is therefore also excellent as a unique and high-quality business gift. The Vin San Laurentino Vino Dulce was awarded 93 points by Parker, the wine guru, and the leading wine magazine Wine Spectator, with 90 points.
Wine and bottles are in perfect condition.
