"The 2004 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico Occhio di Pernice emerges from the glass with an intriguing array of smoke, licorice, honey, scorched earth and tar, all of which add considerable complexity to the fruit. This is an exotic, full-throttle style of Vin Santo, but there is more than enough freshness to balance some of the wine’s more opulent leanings. From time to time the volatile acidity (always present in sweet wines) sticks out a bit, which is the only thing that keeps the score from going higher."

2001 Altesino Vin Santo Val d'Arbia

"The 2001 Vin Santo is another big success for the house. This medium-bodied Vin Santo, with 117 grams of residual sugar, showcases ethereal plums, cloves, dried flowers and licorice, all backed up by considerable richness that leads to an impeccable, creamy finish. The level of detail, clarity and precision are first-class. This is a strong vintage for the estate’s Vin Santo."

2003 Badia a Coltibuono Vin Santo Occhio di Pernice

"The 2003 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico Occhio di Pernice possesses rich, baritone layers of plums, dried prunes, tobacco leaves, worn-in leather, licorice and cloves. There is a deep, inner sweetness that recalls port, along with a beautifully nuanced centeredness that shimmers across the palate. Despite the warm growing season, this is anything but a precocious wine, if anything, it needs at least a few more years in the bottle!"
