This Vin Santo or "Holy Wine" is a blend of Assyrtiko 75% - Aidani 25% from Santorini, Greece.  It is a very interesting Dessert wine, but, a little goes a long way.  Brownish amber in color, mostly opaque and bright.  The nose is big with prunes, toffee, figs, nuts, and coffee.  Full bodied.  Thick and viscous.  On the palate, this is very sweet. There is some acidity but there is a lot of residual sugar.  Flavors of figs, honey, prunes and toffee.  It drank better with a simple, not sweet, cookie along side of it.  A couple ounce pour is filing, satisfying and delicious.  I would think there is enough RS that this should easily age a decade more, but that is a guess.  I tasted this bottle over a few weeks and it held up just fine sitting on the counter (with the cork in it).
