This is a family heirloom of incalculable value. It is a limited production wine available in 375ml bottles. In the words of Mr. Koutsoyannopoulos:
'Such a high quality Vinsanto produced in 1959 and aged in a barrel is very important to our family.
to our family. This wine is 100% from the 1959 vintage, without blending it with wine from a different vintage in the barrel.
[...] Its level had decreased significantly. The oxygen in the barrel could have altered the quality of the wine. So, we bottled it for protection.
Until now, I have never had the opportunity to study the behaviour and character of such an aged Vinsanto.
The initial surprise was its colour and its incredible aroma.
The biggest surprise was when I tried to measure the Baumé degrees at the laboratory.
I am very happy that I had the chance to study its elements, behaviour and taste.
It is a truly once in a lifetime experience…'
