VIN SANTO del Chianti Classico DOC Occhio di Pernice

Vin Santo Toscano belongs to ancient tradition. It is a wine associated with hospitality and being together. In the Tuscan countryside it was traditional to offer the wine to guests, and to give a small cask as a well-wishing gift before the birth of a baby. The name apparently derives from the fact that the grapes used were left to dry until Holy Week (Easter week), when they were crushed and pressed.
