Governo entails adding slightly dried grapes (Trebbiano in the past, now Sangiovese) to the first fresh wine of the vintage that has just ended. This addition sets off a slow second fermentation, in 90-hectoliter barrels, which lasts until the following spring. This process increases the content of glycerol, a factor that gives the wine a plusher and rounder flavour, while maintaining austerity and elegance.
