V. Sattui has a dessert wine for every palate—from a luscious, peachy Muscat to a limited-bottled Angelica to a brandy-fortified Madeira that is the oldest in the U.S. Our 12 year-old Port made in the classic Portuguese style.
This rich, powerful Vintage Port, aged three years in wood casks and made from classic Portuguese varieties—Tinta Cão, Souzão and Touriga Nacional—is amazingly aromatic and silky smooth on the palate.
Solera-made, wood-aged wine, fortified with brandy. Our Solera is over 120 years old, one of the oldest in the U.S. The wine is sweet and luscious with flavors of almonds, caramel, toffee and orange zest. It shares similar characteristics with a 20-year-old Tawny Port. A collector’s wine.
Angelica is a fortified wine traditionally associated with the Mission grape, from which it was made since the early days of California winemaking. V. Sattui instead uses the fresh juice of the Muscat of Alexandria grape and enhances it with brandy.
This botrytised White Riesling, grown at our Henry Ranch vineyard in Carneros, was harvested a full two months after the regular harvest. The grapes were fully infected with the “noble rot” (botrytis cinerea), a fungus which naturally increases sugars. Depending on the conditions, botrytis can be either beneficial or devastating to grapes. (375ml half-bottle)
The Italians like sparkling wines, but they prefer them lightly so "Frizzante" they say. Our Moscato is lighter-bodied, slightly carbonated, lower in alcohol and with just a little sweetness. We like them too!
There’s a very sensual allure about our Muscat dessert wine. It’s related to the Moscato made in the northern Italian province of Piedmonte in the Asti area where Moscato di Canelli is the grape used. These grapes yield a wine that is highly scented and very distinguishable, with the pronounced aromas of ripe peach, orange blossom and spice.
