Grape varietal: Sangiovese 100%
Soil: terrain with ample skeleton – rock of the Montagnola hills. Clay 40%, silt and sand 30%
Vinification and aging: A selection of high quality grapes are laid out to dry. Meanwhile other sangiovese grapes undergo fermentation and maceration lasts for approximately 14 days. During this phase, the wine completed alcoholic fermentation at a temperature of 25° C to fully bring out varietal character and conserve fruity and flora notes. When the first selected grapes become raisins, they are added in the vat of sangiovese grapes and a new fermentation begins. This process is called “Governo”, an old Tuscan tradition. After racking the wine completed malolactic fermentation and it was aged at the I Colli estate prior to bottling.
Tasting notes: Intense ruby-red in color. An elegant bouquet with intense dried fruit aromas and floral hints. The “Governo” grants the wine a round palate, a full taste. Well-structured, soft and harmonious, a great return to a wonderful tradition.
