"The 2009 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico (375 ml) is a blend of equal parts Trebbiano and Malvasia aged in traditional small oak vessels called caratelli for six long years. This is a beautiful and opulent wine with caramel, honey, dried fruit, grilled herb and candied orange peel. The wine feels beautiful on the palate thanks to its creamy weight and delicate textural approach. Drink: 2017-2035. 94 points

Emanuela Stucchi Prinetti and her family have introduced a new wine. The 2011 Montebello (an IGT Toscana) is a complicated blend of indigenous grapes from Central Italy that had been the focus of research and experimental efforts. Each grape contributes a unique quality to the wine: Mammolo is celebrated for its fruity aromas; Ciliegiolo offers darkness of color; Pugnitello delivers structure and a saturated appearance; Colorino is another darkly-colored grape as its name suggests, and it tends to come in at low alcoholic levels; Sanforte is a vigorous grape whose name means "strong Sangiovese"; Malvasia Nera offers structure; Canaiolo contributes acidity; Foglia Tonda adds to the aging and longevity of the wine; and Sangiovese is the traditional glue that binds these grapes together."
