Geografico, 'Bosco del Grillo' Governo

Price
€9,45

This wine has an intense, deep red color. On the nose one smells ripe fruit, mainly red cherries, combined with a floral tone of violets. The attack is very powerful, but not unwieldy. The palate is full with lots of juice, dark fruit and rounded tannins. The alcohol is present, but not distracting. Very complex with an excellent balance.

In the south-west of Savoie lies the village of Jongieux, where Antoine and his parents make congenial, unaffected wines from local grape varieties. For whites these are jacquère and roussette and for reds gamay and mondeuse. The vineyards are situated on poor limestone slopes at about 400 meters altitude. The area has even recently been classified as a national heritage site because of its beauty. And for 7th generation Antoine, preserving this landscape is one of the most important aspects and therefore the domaine is certified 'Haute Valeur Environnementale', which means they are super sustainable.
