Winemaking and Aging
Vin Santo Principe Corsini is dedicated to Saint Andrew Corsini, a Carmelite and Bishop of Fiesole who was recognized as a saint by Boniface VIII. An old and rare wine made from selected Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes. After three months of drying on the racks, the pressing takes place.
According to tradition, the must ferments for five years on its lees in sealed barrels called caratelli. Only the best ones are aged for an additional five years before being bottled. Vinsanto is the pinnacle of an oral tradition that has been handed down, generation to generation, through the centuries.
When well done, it unequivocally represents the best of the farm. Little science and much tradition is used to produce this rare monument of Chianti Classico, making it a precursor to natural wines.
The grapes spread on the racks and hung have been dried for 3 months. The must has fermented in small wooden barrels for 5 years.
Aging in barrels is 5 years plus 5 for the best ones.
