Bibbiano Vin Santo San Lorenzo 2010 (375ml)


A light, flavorful Vin Santo, with caramel, walnut, salted butter and orange peel flavors, this is balanced, with a pleasant astringency on the finish. Drink now. WS89

From the kegs of a true "family reserve" we create the few precious bottles of Vin Santo, dedicated to Saint Lawrence, the Patron Saint of the Bibbiano Chapel.

Once from our Malvasia and Trebbiano grapes, today from our Sangiovese grapes, after several years of maturation, we develop a special wine with a rich aroma and scents of dried apricot, peach and almond. It is a fine round wine, fully bodied and elegant, that blends perfectly with fois gras, pate and aged cheese.

The Winery

The first mention of the Bibbiano estate comes in a parchment dated 1089, located in the Abbey of Passignano. In March of 1865, the property was sold to the forebears of brothers Tommaso and Federico Marrocchesi Marzi. Today, Tommaso and Federico have committed themselves to what they term, Òbringing the past into the future.Ó This sentiment refers not only to their family's history but to their strong belief that the future of Chianti Classic must be firmly rooted in the region's specific terroir, that modernity should not come at the cost of tradition and authenticity.

Surrounded by over three thousand old-growth olive trees are Bibbiano's twenty-five hectares of Sangiovese and Sangiovese Grosso, along with smaller plantings of Colorino and Merlot. These certified organic vineyards are planted on hillside sites at elevations between 270 and 300 meters.

Doisy Daëne wine has a style of its own that privileges a bursting fruit concentrated by the "noble rot", strength, balance and subtlety of the flavors. The Doisy-Daëne style is all at once the expression of a great...
A taut sweetie, with flavors of blood orange, ripe apple and glazed quince that take on some buttery accents. Firm and savory on the finish. Chardonnay and Welschriesling. Best from 2015 through 2025. 2,500 cases...
Chateau Raymond Lafon
It is against my better judgment to taste the sweet wines of Barsac and Sauternes at such an early age, as I find they typically require at least 12 months to reveal the definition/delineation so essential in these...

2000 Chateau Doisy-Vedrines is lacking a little freshness and fruit intensity on the nose. There are aromas of cold stone and a touch of apple and grapefruit, although they are not particularly engaging. The palate is...

Chateau Climens always tends to go into its shell after bottling, which is probably why I was not dishing out an even higher score to this still, spellbinding Barsac. The 2007 is endowed with a lovely bouquet: very...
