Nicolò Governo all’uso Toscano IGT Toscana Red

TENUTA I COLLI

 

 

 

Dedicated to Nicolò Casini, mind and heart of Bindi Sergardi. This wine is obtained through an ancient Tuscan vinification technique called “Governo”.

 

Appellation: Governo all’Uso Toscano

Grape varietal: Sangiovese 100%

Soil: terrain with ample skeleton; rock of the Montagnola hills.

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.

Serving suggestions: an excellent accompaniment white and red meat, cheese and typical Mediterranean first courses.

Serving temperature: 18° C – Store at a constant temperature of 17° C away from light.
