Guide to Sangiovese Wine

Let’s face it, wine lovers, we’ve all had our flirtations. The Cabernet cowboy, the Chardonnay flapper, the Pinot Noir brooding in the corner booth. But tonight, darlings, we’re throwing all that out the window and diving headfirst into the passionate Italian wine embrace of Sangiovese. Why Sangiovese wine ? Because it’s not just a grape, it’s a tango on your tongue, a whispered secret of sun-drenched Tuscan hills, and a symphony of flavors that’ll leave you breathless.

What is Sangiovese Wine?

Imagine this: plump, black cherries basking under the Tuscan sun, whispers of leather and dried violets dancing on the breeze, and a whisper of earthiness grounding it all. That is Sangiovese. Italy’s most adored grape, it’s woven into the very fabric of Chianti red wine, Brunello di Montalcino, and a constellation of other Tuscan treasures. Think of it as Italy’s fiery redhead, bold and vivacious, with a depth that leaves you wanting more.

Where Does Sangiovese Wine Come From?

Sangiovese grape is Tuscany’s crown jewel, strutting its stuff from the rolling hills of Chianti Classico to the sun-drenched slopes of Montalcino. But like a skilled lover, it takes on different personas depending on its terroir. In Chianti, it blends with other grapes, weaving a tapestry of cherry, plum, and earthy spice. In Montalcino, it goes solo, transforming into Brunello di Montalcino, a complex, age-worthy masterpiece. Wherever it goes, Sangiovese wine leaves its mark, a whisper of Tuscan warmth in every sip.
