Chianti DOCG Governo all'uso toscano
An ancient Tuscan technique for an extremely modern wine. Through a look to the past and with the skills of the present a wine is born that speaks of the Tuscan tradition. Ruby red in color with aromas of red fruit and spices, anise, juniper berries and raspberry. Soft and juicy on the palate, full and enveloping in its balsamic persistence.

Subsequent malolactic fermentation and racking. This is where the “new” wine is created, ready to be “governed”.Part of the grapes selected and collected by hand and placed in crates is left to dry out, in crates for about 20 days. The grapes are then destemmed and added to the already fermented “new wine”, proceeding with a second, slow refermentation at a controlled temperature. This procedure, called “governo all’uso toscano”, dates back to the 1800s and comprises the drying out of a part of the best grapes on specific supports, which are then used to activate a second fermentation of the original must.
Ageing in steel vats with micro-oxygenation on fine lees for about 6 months.
Ruby red colour. The bouquet is of red berries and spices, aniseed, juniper berries and raspberry. To the palate it is soft and fruity, full and enveloping, fresh and pleasant with an end fruity, balsamic note.
