 Where to Buy

2007 Santorini Vin Santo 4 Years Barrel Aged Plush and intricately spiced, this is the sort of dessert wine that keeps you sitting at the table long after dinner is done. While it’s caramel-sweet, it’s not at all cloying; a host of flowers, minty herbs, pine and brown sugar all come into play. It parcels out these flavors slowly, the wine as firm as the volcanic stone that lies under the sand of these vineyards, with a vivid sea-spray saltiness that works like a sprinkle of fleur de sel on caramel to up the deliciousness. —Tara Q.
