Governo all' Uso Toscano is an old Tuscan technique to produce Tuscan red wine of great fruitiness and easy appeal. The harvest takes place in two steps: a first early selection of the best grapes of Sangiovese, which will "govern" the fermented wine, and a second harvest of Sangiovese and Syrah grapes at perfect maturation.

The first selection of grapes follow a drying process in specific rooms to intensify the fruity notes and the natural concentration of each grape. In the meanwhile, the second portion starts the first alcoholic fermentation, then it ages in 30 hl oak barrels, in which the malolactic fermentation occurs. In this passage the selected grapes are added to "govern" the wine, enriching it in natural sugar content, and due to this sugar concentration, a second fermentation takes place until springtime. The result is a smooth, fresh and fruity wine.

Ruby red in colour; on the nose you'll find fruity notes of cherry, currant, mixed berries, and floral hints. It's soft, elegant and well balanced thanks to the bright acidity.

Tuscany as a broader region includes famous areas including Montalcino and Chianti and of course the famous table wine, the Super Tuscan. The most planted variety is Sangiovese but international varieties are increasing in popularity with the critical acclaim of Super Tuscan style wines.
