Overview

Vin Santo is made with grapes that have been late harvested and then hung over wires in special well ventilated drying rooms at the winery. On or around Easter, thus the name vin santo, the grapes are ready to be pressed and then fermented into the wonderful viscous sweet wine. Aging is done in small oak barrels that may be made of oak or chestnut. They are referred to as caratelli. Barbi makes their Vino Santo with Trebbiano.
