Castello di Bossi Vin San Laurentino 2005

This classic Italian dessert wine is named after San Laurentino, the patron saint of the church located in the village of Bossi. It is made from grapes that are dried for five months to achieve optimal concentration of flavors and sugars, followed by a slow fermentation and lengthy maturation in traditional caratelli casks.

Tasting Notes

Amber gold in color, this wine has expressive aromas of dried stone fruits, toasted almonds, figs, pine nuts, and orange blossoms. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied with a creamy texture but finishes with enough acidity that the considerable sweetness never seems cloying.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with torrone, biscotti, or alpine cheeses like Comté or Gruyère.
