GOVERNO ALL’USO TOSCANO I.G.T.
Area of Production: Toscana
Varietal: 80% Sangiovese and 20% Merlot
Wine Notes: Intense ruby red color with aromas of cherries and raspberries. Mature, ripe red fruits are robust and balanced on the palate with silky and soft tannins on the finish.
Wine Making Technique: From Sangiovese grapes blended with Merlot, following the traditional production protocol, known as "All'Uso Toscana" we produce this Tuscan wine. We follow the classical vinification method: completely matured grapes are harvested and pressed. Then the must undergoes the alcoholic fermentation at controlled
temperatures with prolonged maceration on the skins. A smaller parcel of grapes making this blend is kept on the vine for a longer period in order to dry and ripen. This fraction is added to the already fermented wine, which now starts a second fermentation. With no oak aging or barrel influence, the result is softer, richer in color and a more structured wine.
Recommended Pairings: Delicious with pasta dishes in rich sauces, matured cheeses and grilled red meats.
