Ser Gioveto
Igt Toscana





Ser Gioveto was conceived in 1985 by Italo as a tribute to his son Sergio, who began working alongside him at the helm of the winery in that year.

That said, the given name of this wine is also a reference to the archaic name of Sangiovese – 'Sangioveto' – which was the main grape chosen to make the new wine. 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot are blended with the noble native vine to create a wine of great structure and character, produced from a selection of the winery's finest grapes.

Aging in French oak barriques for 9-14 months enriches the wine's aromatic complexity with an enhanced sense of balance and elegance.

Bright ruby-red in color, Ser Gioveto releases a warm, attractive aroma of black cherry, plum and blackcurrant syrup, followed by balsamic notes with a spicy finish of leather and sweet tobacco, and can hold its own with full-flavored dishes thanks to its assertive tannic note.
