Domaine Sigalas VinSanto NV Review

This wine style is almost as ancient as the island it was made on. Vin Santo is a ubiquitous term for dessert wine that was once used for medicinal and religious purposes. Today, when done well, it can be a wonderful end to a meal with some biscotti or cheese. It even looks ancient with it’s deep amber hue. With your nose in the glass, caramel and molasses flirt with slight floral hints. As the wine opens, it darkens in the best way, smelling of quality maple syrup. This expression is made from the native Assyrtiko grape along with a less well known indigenous variety Aidani. Both of which make crispy, dry white wines. So it’s a real treat when these lighter grapes can show just how deep they can go.
