Uggiano Governo Toscano


A ripe and supple red made by the traditional Tuscan 'Governo’ method, involving a slow refermentation of the freshly produced wine with the addition of semi-dried grapes to give concentration.

The predominantly Sangiovese grapes, from Montespertoli in the Colli Fiorentini zone, are harvested in late September. They are hand-picked, crushed and undergo 10-15 days' fermentation with selected yeasts in stainless steel at 28-30°C. The must is pumped over the skins twice a day. Meanwhile, 10 to 15% of the crop is left to dry for 30 days, then added to the freshly fermented wine. This brings about a slow refermentation lasting 4 to 5 weeks. The process, known as Governo, enhances freshness, concentration and roundness in the finished wine.

Youthful aromas of ripe plum and cherry with spicy bramble fruit. Full flavoured and generous on the palate with good concentration of red berry fruit backed by fresh acidity and supple tannins. An approachable, rounded style with a mellow, gently spicy finish.
