The 2006 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico Occhio di Pernice is one of the best wines I have tasted from Badia a Coltibuono in some time. Sweet, dark and voluptuous, the 2006 shows all of the richness of a 100% Sangiovese Vin Santo, yet also possesses remarkable restraint for such a big wine, with plenty of intensity but no excess weight. A bevy of leather, licorice and clove notes round out the silky, mid-weight finish.

This dessert-style white is intense and concentrated but structured, with apricot, caramel, brown butter and walnut flavors allied to a lean frame. This is balanced and just won't quit on the lingering caramel-and-walnut finish. Drink now through 2020. 200 cases made.
