Vin Santo di Carmignano

DOC area in the Italian region of Tuscany. The wine formerly included in the Barco Reale di Carmignano DOC area was classified as a separate DOC area in 2013. The zone covers the two municipalities of Carmignano and Poggio a Caiano in the province of Prato and is identical to that of the Carmignano DOCG area. There are two variants. The white Vin Santo di Carmignano is made from Trebbiano Toscano and/or Malvasia Bianca Lunga (zum. 75%) and other authorised varieties (max 25%) in the secco and amabile versions. The salmon-red Vin Santo di Carmignano Occhio di Pernice is produced from Sangiovese (zum. 50%) and other authorised red and white varieties (max. 50%). Both have an alcohol content of 16% vol. and age three years in cask; from four years on they may call themselves Riserva.
