In 1983, the DOC wines in Camignano were expanded with a Vin Santo. The type is either Secco or Amabile and are produced from the grapes Trebbiano Toscano and/or Malvasia Bianca Lunga (min. 75%) with permission to use specially selected, local green grapes from the Prato province.

After plucking, the grapes are dried on straw mats or shelves in custom houses, and the pressing is done between December 1 of the harvest year, and March 31 of the following year.

Vin Santo di Carmignano ranges from straw yellow to golden to an intense amber. The aroma is ethereal, intense and characteristic. The taste is harmonious, smooth and specially, markedly round in the sweet Amabile.

The minimum alcohol concentration is 16%.
