Le Chiantigiane – Oro dei Sani Governo Rosso Toscana Igt

R185.00

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.

SERVING TEMPERATURE: Serve at a temperature of 18°-20° C.
