Sangiovese wine

Sangiovese grapes in the vineyard of Ridolfi in Brunello di Montalcono DOCG

Sangiovese is the most planted grape variety in Italy and the main player in some of the country's best red wines. Known as the workhorse of central Italy, it can be found everywhere – from the humblest table wines to the very best DOCG treasures.

You've probably tasted Sangiovese without realising it. It forms 75-100% of the blend in Chianti and Chianti Classico, while Brunello di Montalcino is pure Sangiovese. It also leads the blend in Tuscany's Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, and features in Montepulciano d'Abruzzo too. It's often added into Super Tuscan wines along with international varietals like Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

What does it taste like? Sangiovese can be fruit-forward or earthy, depending on where it's grown. In Italy's best DOCG wines, such as Brunello or Chianti Classico, it will have a powerful and complex taste of red cherry with hints of liquorice, violet flowers, vanilla, chocolate and dried cranberry. Sangiovese is high in acid – bringing a refreshing twist to any blend.
