Description

Made at the San Leonino winery in Chianti by Andreas Lonardi using Sangiovese grapes, the winemaking for Governo uses the ancient technique that leaves 30% of the grapes to dry naturally for three months after harvest. Then in December, the dried grapes are pressed and added to the rest of the wine before barrel fermentation and ageing for 5 months.

Governo IGT

Irish Country Living

Impressive wine making techniques lead to an impressive wine. 30% of the grapes are dried for three months after harvest. After pressing they are added to the rest of the wine for barrel fermentation for five months resulting in wonderful cherry notes intensified by cassis, herbs and hints of wood.
