Toscana Giovin Re is characterized by an intense straw yellow color. The nose opens with an elegant bouquet of apricot and citrus fruits, enriched with spicy notes of incense and typically oriental flavors. On the palate it is harmonious, fresh and pleasantly persistent.
Excellent to pair with grilled white meats; it goes perfectly with seafood and with all the particularly tasty and elaborate recipes based on vegetables and fish. It shows its best expression when accompanying savory and spicy dishes of strong personality.
This wine was born thanks to a spontaneous intuition (tasting the Viognier grape present in the farm during the harvest, I recognized an extraordinary aromatic richness and decided to make a wine 100% Viognier). Giovin Re confirms year after year its special value. After a short maceration on the skins, the must ferments in used barriques cleaned and polished, where it remains until March before being bottled without fining. It’s ready for consumption after other 6 months and reaches its full expression in the two following years. It shows its best expression when accompanying savory and spicy dishes of strong personality.
