Le Capezzine: Malvasia, Trebbiano toscano
Sweet and intense, yet characterised by a fragrant acidity, this Vin Santo is unique in every way, featuring a never ending bouquet and a sensual taste.
Suited for long refinement in the bottle, the Avignonesi Vin Santo can be kept for a long time, after the bottle has been opened, if properly closed and stored in the fridge.

Aromas and flavors of fresh medicinal herbs, coffee, caramel, and molasses highlight this intense, concentrated, yet ultimately elegant dessert white. The acidity must be off the charts to balance this level of sweetness. The finish goes on and on. Drink now through 2030.—B.S.

97/100 Wine Advocate
When it comes to Vin Santo, nobody beats Avignonesi. The 2000 Vin Santo di Montepulciano is a wine of unlimited pleasure, decadence and opulence. This syrupy dessert wine pours into the glass in slow motion. It shows a level of richness and thickness that puts it closer to molasses or melted brown sugar in terms of consistency. The color is a deep shade of amber brown. The bouquet offers exciting tones of honey, candied fruit and marrons glacé. You also get knock out tones of Teriyaki sauce, white truffle and Indian spice that bring the wine's inherent complexity into the stratosphere. The mouthfeel is rich, tangy and crisp. This is a work of vinous beauty. – Monica Larner
