Denomination: Orcia DOC RISERVA

Alcohol Content: 14% Vol.
Grape Variety: 100% Sangiovese Grosso

Vineyard of production: 

The Giovesone relies on the use, in purity, of our best Sangiovese grapes. Like the other wines of La Nascosta, they are produced from the vineyards of the Estate, located in the heart of the Val d'Orcia, at an altitude of about 420 meters. Specifically, the Giovesone comes fromf a single vineyard, of about 20 years old and a 1.4 hectares area, with an East / West exposure. The vineyard stands on a clayey soil, very rich in calcareous lithoids and sediments of marine origin from the Mio-Pliocene age, but also in volcanic rocks linked to the Pleistocene activity of the Monte Amiata. The natural characteristics of the vineyard and the management of precision applied to achieve the highest quality result in a very low yield that varies between 35 and 45 quintals per hectare.

Vinification and Aging: 

Vinification and Aging: 

The grapes used in the Giovesone are the best produced by the Nascosta’s oldest vineyard. The harvest takes place between the end of September and October, at temperatures not exceeding 20 ° C. The vinification techniques of red wines involve an initially low temperature of maceration, with a special yeast, with the addition of a second traditional yeast after 48 hours. Thanks to the technology integrated in the cellar, the main winemaking phases, such as pumping, delestages and pressuring of the product, are conducted to result in a soft extraction.
After the alcoholic and malolactic fermentations, the Giovesone is aged in 500-liter Tonneaux of French Oak and Austrian Oak. The aging period in wood lasts about 24 months. Follows another 12 months of aging in the bottle, at controlled temperature and humidity and in the absence of light.
