Val Serena Vin Santo (PB)

On the pour there is too much alcohol in the nose with port-like nose. It is amber with a tinge of pink. It is very sweet like a port with hints of raisin and guava. This is the traditional Italian desert wine but this is one is a really inexpensive variety costing just $6 for a Half bottle. Yes it is shallow, yes it is out of balance and yes it doesn’t have much of a finish but for Pete’s sake, it’s $6. And frankly, for that, I’ll raise a glass!
