Have you tried vinsanto?



One of the finest wines you’ve ever tasted. Vinsanto is made of white grapes (varieties Assyrtico and Aidani) which have been sun-dried for days. It has a strong, sweet taste and is usually served as desert wine. Its name derives from vino santo, that is holy wine, or, as others believe, wine from Santo(rini). 
For centuries, the wine was exported to Orthodox Russia, where it was used for the Holy Communion.
