Chianti - Sangiovese

Items 1 to 20 of 26 total

Sangiovese (Sahn-joe-VAY-zeh) is the most popular varietal in Italy, the principal grape of Chianti (kee-AHN-tee), and is fast becoming a frequent sight amongst Californian vineyards. One of the reasons for this demand from winemakers is the vines ability to thrive in the hot and dry climates that destroy other varieties. Sangiovese’s nose will vary with the soil but the overall profile of the wine will consist of fruit such as strawberry, blueberry, and plum, with notes of clove and thyme. Sangiovese generally carries with it moderate to high acid levels, with a petite to robust body and a finish that may have some kick. Whether it is in a blend or all by itself, Sangiovese is grape to enjoy.
