A blend of 60% Trebbiano Toscano and 40% Malvasia del Chianti, this opulent dessert wine opens with intense aromas of dry almond biscuit, dried apricot and a whiff of maple syrup that carry over to the rich palate along with cream caramel and candied nectarine. The intense flavors are balanced by fresh acidity and lingering finish.
