Generous, harmonious and silky.
Made in the historical method, this red IGT blend uses grapes left to dry on vine. The dried grapes are then added to the wine and left to referment together creating a more luscious and fruity wine. It's not unlike the appassimento wines of Veneto (Amarone, Recioto and Ripasso) but the process differs. The Tuscan version is known as Governo all'Uso Toscana.
Expect an enticingly scented wine that's earthy with black cherry, leather, dried flowers, spice and salted licorice. It's a supple red with notable intensity and flavours of chocolate and leather. The texture is silky and quite plush. It is generous, harmonious and mouthfilling. Delicious.
