Poderi del Paradiso, owned by the Cetti family since the 13th century, is an amphitheatre of vineyards at the base of the medieval Tuscan town of San Gimignano, known for its skyscraper-like towers built during the Renaissance. Here the Cetti family farms about 30 hectares of vines, and with the help of renowned winemaker Paolo Caciorgna craft classic San Gimignano wines vintage after vintage. The winery produces about 115,000 bottles per year. There are also nearly 1300 olive trees on the territory of the estate which produce outstanding olive oil.
The main wines produced include Vernaccia, Chianti Colli Senesi, and gorgeous Bordelais blends of Sangiovese, Cabernet, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc.
The Cetti family also operates a gorgeous agriturismo on the property if you ever plan to travel to Tuscany.
This dessert wine expresses apricot and floral notes with a hint of honey on the nose. Much the same on the palate, with a balanced sweetness and a long finish. An elegant sweet wine, well balanced flavor with notes of almond and dried flowers.
The grapes are picked in September and dried until December and aged for at least four years in oak casks of 100 liters.
The wine matches perfectly with desserts, sweets and the traditional Cantucci (almond biscotti). Vinification: drying the grapes until December and ageing for at least 4 years in oak casks of 100 litres.
