Description

Santuccio comes from a skillful blend of Trebbiano and Malvasia Chianti grapes, and is the hospitality and friendship wine to be sipped after a meal with a base of dried fruit pastries, such as the traditional Cantuccini typical of Siena.
Santuccio della Marronaia is a sweet dessert wine that achieves a 16% alcohol content, the result of careful production of certified organic grapes that grow in the vineyards of Podere La Marronaia at an altitude of 380 meters.
The grapes are harvested by hand and divided according to the quality. The grapes are then laid out to dry on mats for about three months. This procedure removes excess water and makes for a very sweet wine. At a later date the grapes are gently pressed and the juice is fermented, being aged for 6 months in steel tanks and then aged in the bottle.
