Wine is a journey, and what I like about this journey is that some wines cause me to have to add new wine types to my site, which means more pages in the site, as well as to change up, or add more logic to the way that the site works. Sparkling wines were one of those challenges, but dessert wines also pose that challenge. And this wine, will cause me to finally make another logic change.

There are several type of Vin Santo, or 'saintly wine,' and not all of them are equal in taste, nor complexity. This Vin Santo, the Del Chianti version by Geografico, is a lovely wine in the fact that while it has the deep and all-consuming texture of a Sauterne or a Port, it's sweetness almost has a smoky undertone with a hint of nutmeg and/or cinnamon.

I give this wine a 9 out of a possible 10, simply because while it's excellent, I have not had enough of it's type to make a good and accurate comparison.

This wine is phenomenal and a great after dinner treat for both men and women. It's also a great pairing to pastries no matter what time of day it is.

We believe in finding something that you like the taste of, outside of the basic brands that you have been force-fed over the years through a combination of ethnically targeted advertising, and what people in your family have historically been drinking.
