The Collective Review

Dream of an Italian escape? Let the rolling hills of Tuscany come to you with just a sip of this exquisite red. Presenting a highly-rated, beloved customer favourite, Super Tuscan, in an incredible offer today. This wine embodies the quintessence of Tuscan viticulture, crafted with an age-old technique that dates back over 500 years.

The story begins in the 14th century when an ingenious Tuscan winemaker discovered that reserving a portion of grapes to dry in the sun before adding them to the fermenting wine enhanced fermentation and enriched the wine's flavour.

This method, known as the governo technique, enjoyed popularity for centuries. However, recent climate changes have made grape ripening less challenging, rendering the costly and intricate governo winemaking method less common, with its practices adapted by Veneto producers in the north to boost flavour. Now, winemakers like Andrea Valiani are reviving governo, and this Lotto Unico IGT Governo All’uso Toscano represents the zenith of their efforts.

A harmonious blend of Sangiovese and Merlot, this unique red wine is designed as a nod to the past. It boasts a rich fruitfulness, reminiscent of a Christmas cake in its lushness, blending extraordinary generosity and flavour with an unexpectedly savoury finish.

Our introduction to the governo method came from another winemaker, and upon tasting these wines, we were utterly captivated - this is pure indulgence at its finest.
