Pomino Vinsanto is a “meditation wine” that is perfectly accompanied by dried fruit and desserts and is best serve in large chalices.
The 2009 growing season was quite positive especially for the excellent quality of the harvested fruit. Spring, as in the previous years, brought heavy rains, which proved a significant challenge to vineyard crews working the vines to maintain the grapes healthy, but the rainfall did increase the groundwater reserves. June and July, on the other hand, saw moderate rainfall, which enabled the vines to make up for spring’s slow pace and brought forward the ripening process. The grapevines were thus able to function at maximum efficiency and the grapes ripened slightly earlier than the previous year. In addition, the cool nights and warm, sunny days that followed in September ensured that the grapes achieved full maturity and were able to yield wines of very high quality. This favourable growing season gifted us with optimal conditions, bringing into the cellar well-ripened fruit, desired acidities, and good overall aromatic complexity
Intensely golden with amber highlights, Pomino Vinsanto 2009 has a nose rich in candied fruits, dried apricots and spicy, peppery scents. In the mouth the wine is pleasantly rounded and recalls the pleasant sweetness of maple syrup soon followed by nougat and dried fruit. The aroma’s complexity is then crowned by a vivacious crispness and a warm finish that summons memories of distilled wines.
