About the 2019 Gianfranco Fino Se

The Gianfranco Fino Sé, like the Es, is made from 100% Primitivo from a small vineyard of only 5 HA, but even more special is the forced yield of only (on average) 400 grams of grapes per plant. Gianfranco Fino's Sé is a top wine that consistently receives high ratings and distinguishes itself as the number 1 Italian wine according to Gambero Rosso's prestigious Vini d'Italia. This 1,000-page guide rates more than 10,000 wines from 2,350 producers and has awarded Gianfranco Fino's Sé the highest rating of Tre Bicchieri (three glasses). This marks the wine as an example of quality and consistency over the years.

Gianfranco Fino Se 2019 harvest & vinification

The Sé, a Salento Primitivo IGT, is characterized by its ruby red color that radiates liveliness and clarity. This wine is produced with care in the Manduria region, with a soil of limestone and clay, ideal for the Primitivo grape. Gianfranco Fino applies a classic Apulian Alberello system known as 'hare's ears', and the grapes are harvested manually at the end of August to ensure optimal ripeness.

During the ripening and aging process, Gianfranco Fino wants to emphasize the characteristics of the Primitivo grape. After careful manual harvesting and meticulous selection of the grapes, they undergo a soft pressing, followed by a maceration period of two to three weeks in large stainless steel tanks. This process ensures optimal extraction of color, aromas and flavors from the skins, while the temperature of the must is closely controlled to maintain the freshness and vitality of the wine. After maceration, the wine is transferred to oak barrels where it ages for about nine months.

After aging in oak, the wine is bottled without the use of fining or cold stabilization, to preserve the authenticity and integrity of the wine. Bottle aging, which lasts approximately six months before the wine is released onto the market, gives the wine the opportunity to further develop and stabilize. The wine can be stored for years to come.

Tasting notes of the Gianfranco Fino Se

On the nose, Sé offers a fruity explosion of raspberries, cherries and blackcurrants, enriched with spicy notes of rosemary and thyme, and subtle hints of leather and chocolate. In the mouth the wine is surprisingly fresh, medium to full body, and particularly juicy. The balanced acidity contributes to the finesse of this wine, which combines excellently with dishes such as a juicy rib-eye, rabbit or lamb shoulder.

This wine not only deserves a place in the cellars of collectors, but is also an excellent choice for connoisseurs looking for a wine experience.
