Hva Er Vin Santo?
- Kárpáthy Bajnok
Vin Santo (‘holy wine’) is a style of Italian dessert wine. Traditional in Tuscany, these wines are often made from white grape varieties such as Trebbiano and Malvasia, though Sangiovese may be used to produce a rosé style known as ‘Occhio di Pernice’ or eye of the partridge.
What is Vin Santo di Trentino?
In Veneto, the wine region of Gambellera makes a Vin Santo with the Soave grape, Garganega. In Trentino, there is a rare aromatic grape called Nosiola which tastes somewhere in-between Viognier and Gewürztraminer that goes into Vin Santo di Trentino.
