Vin Santo del CHIANTI DOC
Pope Clement IX, born Giulio Rospigliosi, the only Pistoian pontiff. His period at the Roman Curia was short but very fruitful, and he is also remembered for his work as a librettist and for his contribution in determining the tastes and orientations of seventeenth-century Roman melodrama. Pope Rospigliosi had a splendid villa surrounded by olive trees built on the hills of Montalbano, as evidence of his family’s bond with this territory. Villa Rospigliosi, built on a project by Bernini, is elegant and majestic, with a typically Tuscan background of rolling hills full of olive trees.
Vin Santo del CHIANTI DOC, produced from Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes, is characterized by an intense amber color and a pleasant scent of dried fruit with hints of honey and a sweet and velvety taste.
