Selected crushed Sangiovese grapes, which had been left to dry on the vines, are added towards the end of the fermentation process into a well balanced Governo IGT Toscano wine. This oenological practice called “Governo” gives to the wine a particular structure and refinement. In fact, the addition of these over ripe grapes leads to a further release of sweet, noble polyphenols into the must/wine, and increase in the alcoholic strength, 13.5%by vol., and a remarkable increase in extracts, glycerine and smoothness. A second fermentation is carried out in order to prolong the time during which the grapes colouring substance and flavor are released, to obtain a more fruity wine with long lasting organoleptic and taste characteristics.
A ruby red wine with marked notes of ripe fruit especially red cherries and an elegant floral touch of violet. It is a generous wine, full-bodied, smooth and harmonious. Ideal with succulent starters, assorted aged cheeses, grilled meats, game or earthy soups.
