Sangiovese wine grape
Sangiovese is Italy’s most famous black grape. Its home is Tuscany, where it is the grape of Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and, confusingly, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. It’s now planted all over Italy except in the far north, where it doesn’t ripen.
Its thin skins are not deep in colour but are relatively high in tannins. Its wine tends to be medium-bodied with high acidity and characteristic sour cherry flavours, accompanied by earthy, tea-leaf aromas.
