The 2006 Vin Santo is quite powerful and viscous in the glass, perhaps a bit more so than is the norm. An exotic mélange of dried fig, honey, sage, baking spices and sweet herbs are all thrust forward. This is one of the most intense Vin Santos I can remember tasting at Isole e Olena. The 220 grams of residual sugar are clearly felt in the wine's heft, yet all the elements are in the right place. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, September 2015)

Savoury traditional Chinese medicine aromas, dates, prunes, sultana raisins, roots and root vegetables. Tangy acidity and long finish. Truly delectable
