Santo Winery VinSanto 2014 Review

The island of Santorini is hot and windy. It’s the perfect climate for the clean, crisp, and bracing wines made from the Assyrtiko grape. But the history of wine in the Agean sea lies in sweet wine that would travel well and last many months on the water. This is a nice example of sipping some history. Made up of mostly Assyrtiko and another native variety named Aidini, this wine has a welcome Sherry-like nose. There is a good balance on the placate due to the high natural acidity in these grapes. You may even get a hint of Maraschino cherries that will remind you of a Manhattan.
