Dessert Wines - ELBA VIN SANTO OCCHIO DI PERNICE
Vin Santo “Occhio di Pernice” is a typical Tuscan dessert wine, also present in DOC Elba.
The wine is obtained by drying Sangiovese grapes that have been harvested late in the season, putting them in to cure in the fruit storehouse where they will remain until Christmas. After this drying period the grapes are pressed, thereby obtaining a must that is dense and rich with sugar, which is then put into wooden kegs, thus initiating its long, slow fermentation which lasts 6 full years.
