Vinsanto 2017


First vintage Vinsanto by Vassaltis is a real treasure, an ambrosia sent from gods, that excites the senses with its taste, its legend, and the singularity of its birthplace, the inimitable Santorini.

Vinsanto (Vino di Santorini) has been renowned since the 12th century and it is considered as one of the top dessert wines worldwide. Made from late-harvest, sun-dried white grapes, this traditional, naturally sweet wine is aged for at least two years in oak, though usually much longer. Vinsanto is registered with a Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) and must be made from at least 51% Assyrtiko grapes. 

Andromachi’s Tasting Notes

This wine displays an amber-brown colour with orange hues. The nose shows complex, exuberant aromas of dried fruits, butter, vanilla, honey, caramel, coffee, nuts and spices. On the palate sweetness is kept in balance by naturally high acidity. Full-bodied, luscious, leading towards a lingering, never-ending, aftertaste. A pleasant tannic finish contributes to the overall balance of this wine.
