Considered the "wine of hospitality", in Tuscan homes this lustrous golden wine encouraged guests and family to linger and savor the meal in good company. The historical name Vin Santo comes from a traditional Greek dessert wine made on the small island of Santorini, in fact literally translated, Vin Santo means "wine of Santorini". Over the centuries Italy became a major producer of Vin Santo wine and the Baroncini family producer of some of the finest Vin Santo in Tuscany.

Modern times, however, have necessitated a change in classification of the growing region and the name of the wine that came to be known internationally as Vin Santo. With the development of the European Union, a regulation was adopted to preserve the traditional products unique to the heritage and culture of each country so today Vin Santo may only be used to describe wine produced in Santorini. If used in Italy the name must be combined with the sub-area of the Chianti growing region or no longer called Vin Santo.
