Medium Body, Fruity (Sangiovese). DOCG. Alc 13.5%.
Fans of Sangiovese ... now for something very different! This wine uses part-dried grapes. Think of it as a richer, fruitier Chianti with almost an appassimento character.
WINERY NOTES: Deeply bright red colour with complex and structured bouquet. Blackberries and forest berries are pronounced on the nose, while a hint of violet and ethereal balsamic scents lingers in the background. On the palate it's fruity and round, with well-balanced tannins. It's the perfect complement to tasty pasta dishes, roasted red meats and game of all kind.
'Governo' derives from the verb 'govern' (in Italian - governare), frequently used in Tuscan tradition to denote something that was "created in a certain way".
This term is strictly connected to the peasant tradition when the wine was made in small cellars and there wasn't enough space to ferment the grapes - harvested in different period - in separate vats. Doing so, more than 2 fermentation processes could happen.
Today, everything is different and studied to obtain the best results that this Governo method could give to the winemaker. The result is a full-bodied wine with over-ripe notes perfectly and harmoniously married with the fresh wine's fruity scents.
