Sangiovese

Strongly associated with the rolling hills of Tuscany, this is one of Italy’s signature grape varieties, and is used to make the iconic styles of Chianti Classico, Rosso di Montalcino and Brunello di Montalcino. The dry red wines that this superb variety produces are characterised by their bright primary red fruit (think strawberry, raspberry, redcurrant, red plum), herbal notes of thyme and tea leaf and refreshing high acidity. With high levels of complex, firm tannins in youth (which soften with age) and a marvellous affinity with French oak, Sangiovese produces stunningly ageworthy wines that gain a beautiful savoury complexity with time in bottle.

Discover the beautiful reds of world-renowned Tuscan producers such as Biondi-Santi, Antinori, Soldera and Gaja. Explore the iconic 100% Sangiovese wines of Le Montervertine’s Pergole Torte or Bibi Graetz’s Testamatta, with grapes sourced from exceptional old Tuscan vines.
