Upcoming Wine TastingsWine CoursesA Fun Sommelier Test

Even though Sangiovese is Italy’s most prolific and widely planted grape, it is popularly associated with Tuscany- Chianti, to be specific. In the hills near Orvieto, blended with Canaiolo, Ciliegiolo, and a touch of Merlot, it assumes a character unlike that of other Sangiovese styles from Umbria.

The nose is decidedly dark and fruity, as are the berry flavors that roll across the palate on a wave of smooth texture that slowly reveals depth and intensity; from the first swirl to the final sip, this is a wine that showcases its pedigree and evokes the green heart of central Italy.
