Governo all’ uso Toscano - IGT Toscana Rosso

80% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Alicante Bouschet

A simple technique that was lost to time is that of “ Governo” according to the tuscan use. With enthusiasm, we have decided to make use of it again and to put ourselves to the test with a new wine. From this technique comes our new wine “Poggio alla Pie- tra”, 80% sangiovese, with equal parts cabernet sauvignon and alicante bouschet.

The technique of “Governo all’uso toscano” entails slow fermenting the wine as soon as it is produced. The additition of a small quantity of grape-must (15% of solely sangiovese grapes) selected and dried on trellises for about 2 months, setting off a second fermentation, confers a more smooth and rounded flavour.

Colour: Intense ruby red with many highlights of violet
Bouquet: A complex harmony of aromas that range from ripe red fruit, above all plum and cherry, to fresh and exotic spices.
Flavour: A powerful and refined wine, very flavourful and lightly sweet on the great finish. Thanks to its versatility it perfectly accompanies meat dishes, boiled or roasted, and also savoury cheeses

Serving Temperature 14°-16° Drink in 12/15 years Alcohol: 13,5% Residual Sugar: 7,3 gr/l
