Il Governo all'uso toscano

Chianti D.O.C.G.
Wine produced from Sangiovese grapes, selected and picked using crates at the most favourable moment of the picking season.

The grapes are vinified in wooden barrels according to the ancient tradition of “Governo the Tuscan way” with the addition of partially dried Cabernet grapes to the wine as soon as it is removed from the barrels.

Aging takes place in the same barrels and continues , after bottling directly from the barrels, for 6 months in glass. In this way a lively, ruby-red wine is obtained, scented and full, fresh and harmonious to the palate with a winey aftertaste that evokes the flavours of the grape harvest.
