From the name ‘Holy Wine’ to its historic use in Catholic Mass to the cruciform on every barrel, this is wine intimately linked to the Church. It’s a distinct style too, slightly toffeeish and nutty, its sweetness balanced by sherried notes. Have it the traditional way, with cantucci biscuits to dip in the wine.
