Vinsanto del Chianti DOC Farnito 1999 - Carpineto

Carpineto

€35.25

Golden yellow with bronze hues. Intense and complex with hints of apricot and peach jam, walnut, and typical Malvasia aromatics. A good balance between the complex, intense balsamic fragrances, the alcohol and the sweetness. Long and persistent.

Description

The Farnito, whose name derives from a type of oak in Tuscany called Farnia, was put on sale for the first time in 1987, following a long experimentation with international vines. Still produced in limited quantities, they are a valid alternative to wines with a registered designation of origin. Small and highly sought after productions of high quality. In the old days, Vinsanto was made particularly valuable by the fact that each family’s father or grand-father would make their own, following a time honored recipe handed down through generations. Many origins of this wine, and its singular name, have been hypothesized, the truth however is lost in time. One legend from Siena states that a friar from the fourteenth century would hand this wine to the ill-disposed for its healing properties. From this the belief that this wine had miracoulous properties, hence the name “Santo”. Another possible explanation to the name comes from its use by the church during the mass.
