2006 Rocca di Montegrossi Vin Santo 375ml (half bottle)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 96+ Points
The 2006 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico (375-milliliters) is packed unthinkably tight with honey, maple syrup, brown sugar and crème brûlée. This is an unbelievably beautiful wine that flaunts extreme precision and abundant aromatic intensity. The mouthfeel is succulent and rich with honey-like viscosity that allows the wine to wrap over the palate in careful slow motion. The finish is luscious and deep, and despite the very high residual sugar, this Vin Santo del Chianti Classico shows impressive complexity and overall elegance. The natural acidity and the 12.5% alcoholic content keeps the wine from ever feeling too heavy.
