Sofia Barbanera’s Saracosa is one of our best-selling, most popular Italian reds. Grateful for such a positive response, she’s crafted this special premium edition, which will be a serious treat for lovers of any super-rich red.

Sofia turned to Tuscany’s historic governo method and allowed a portion of her ripe Sangiovese to air dry for 20 days. This process dials the flavor concentration and complexity of the wine way, way up. Adding a dash of Merlot imparts a soft, plummy smoothness and time aging in oak barrels weaves inviting spice notes throughout.

Look for vibrant red fruits (think strawberry and cherry), plus creamy chocolate raisin and vanilla oak notes. One sip and you’ll see why Italian critic Luca Maroni lavished it with huge, 98-point praise multiple vintages in a row. The experts at Wine Enthusiast were also impressed, and gave this 2020 vintage a coveted spot on their "Best of the Year 2023" Buying Guide.

Like any red made with this level of care, there aren’t that many cases to go around. Give governo a try today and see what the buzz is all about.
