Crafted by Piedrasassi's legendary Sashi Moorman, this Vin Santo is truly unlike any other wine produced in North America. It is a deeply concentrated, Sangiovese-based sweet wine.

Serve this wine after dinner with dessert — roasted chestnuts, dulce de leche ice cream, or dark chocolate — or with a ripe blue cheese.
