Luca Maroni awarded this wine 94 points. (lucamaroni.com, 2018) The term 'Governo' indicates that this wine was produced using a technique that dates to 14th-century Tuscany. The Governo process calls for the setting aside of a portion of the grapes from the harvest to be partially dried. These grapes, and more importantly their concentrated sugars, are then added to the must of the main portion of wine, triggering a new fermentation. This second fermentation produces drier wines with even more intensity and depth. The technique can also result in softer, more rounded wines. This example will be great with roast beef or grilled sausages.
