A dark, ruby red colour with garnet hues, it has a wide, complex and refined nose, with intriguingly soft and sensual notes of sour cherry jam, maraschino cherries, prunes and dried figs, forest floor, an infusion of red flowers and a strong touch of dark chocolate. A rich, powerful palate with lively tannins; its high alcohol is well balanced by an acid note, reminiscent of crunchy raspberries.

48 quintals per hectare.
42 months in large Slavonian oak barrels and 225-litre-size barriques, medium toasted French oak barrels; at least 2 years in bottles.

“In 1964 I decided to produce a truly superior wine that would combine a powerful texture with the most elegant aromas and pleasing roundness. Since then however, the perfect microclimate and seasonal conditions needed to produce our “Gioè” have only occurred seventeen times.” [Giancarlo Begnoni]
