Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.

Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.

A selection of high quality grapes are laid out to dry. Meanwhile, other Sangiovese grapes are de-stemmed and gently pressed. Alcoholic fermentation, lasting about 15 days, takes place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature of around 25 ° C to enhance the aromatic expression and preserve the fruity and floral notes. Once the drying is complete, the dried grapes are softly pressed and the resulting must is added to the wine obtained during the first fermentation, thus starting the second fermentation. This process is called “Governo”, an old Tuscan tradition. After racking the wine completed malolactic fermentation and it was aged at the I Colli estate prior to bottling.
