Sangiovese, meaning 'blood of Jupiter,' is Italy’s most widely planted varietal. It is grown across most of central Italy and, outside of Italy, it can be found in Argentina, California, and Australia.
Always distinguishable by vibrant cherry flavours, younger Sangiovese is lively and light, fresh, and bursting with fruity notes. Sangiovese takes to ageing like a silver fox and can become intensely dark and tannic with oaky and concentrated flavours. Often a well-aged Sangiovese will have superb savoury and herbaceous notes and a vibrant spiciness.
