sahn-joh-VEH-zeh | Sangiovese wines are the pride of Tuscany, and are often compared to the iconic Cabernet Sauvignon. With a fruity flavor and moderate to high natural acidity, Sangiovese wines have a medium body that ranges from elegant to robust, with a finish that can tend towards bitterness. Its aroma is a delightful blend of herbs, earth, leather, and floral notes. The majority of Sangiovese-based wines come from Chianti and Chianti Classico, but it is also a key component in other Italian wines like Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Carmignano, and Torgiano. Brunello di Montalcino is the only unblended Sangiovese, and its light color and extract, high tannin and acid, and earthy notes make it unique. Whether on its own or blended with other varietals, Sangiovese is a wine lover's favorite that offers a unique taste of Tuscany's terroir.
