2002 Castello di Meleto Vin Santo del Chianti Classico (DOC), Italy.
14.5% alcohol. This wine matures at least three years in small oak casks. Imported by Vias Imports Ltd. First tried at a Fayetteville (NC) Wine Society dinner.
Plum/prune scents similar to a Port. Hints of brown sugar and creme brulee crust. Quite enjoyable. Probably could be served over ice cream but I enjoyed it on its own as an after-dinner sipper. I was surprised how similar I found it to be to a tawny Port but with lower alcohol.
