WA 94+ WS 93 IWC 92 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - The 2004 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico is stunningly beautiful. This is a fairly restrained vintage for the Vin Santo in which some of the wine’s more oxidative qualities are less evident than in other years. Orange peel, burnt sugar, dried flowers and herbs wrap around the generous, inviting finish. Despite its nearly 8 years of age, the 2004 remains very young, with a bright life ahead of it. The wine needs several hours if opened today. Felsina’s Vin Santo is 55% Malvasia, 25% Trebbiano and 20% Sangiovese, aged 7 years in the traditional small Vin Santo casks. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024.
According to Wine Spectator - Plenty of candied walnut, molasses and honey highlight this smooth and concentrated Vin Santo. There's an astringent streak on the finish that helps keep this light, along with moderate acidity. Drink now through 2020.
According to International Wine Cellar - Bright, pale yellow-gold color. Pear and peach nectar along with strong nutty, caramel, honey and raisin aromas on the nose. Dense, tactile and harmonious, with an exotic candied sweetness to the flavors of dried apricot, toffee and vanillin oak. This wine's long, smooth finish and lush, pliant texture give it immediate appeal. Much better than the 2003. 15.5% ABV.
