Many consider Sangiovese to be Italy's favourite grape and is the main varietal in many famous wines such as Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino. Although varied, common characteristics include a savoury taste, and high tannin/acidity. This wine is considered to be the more fruit-forward, rather than rustic, style of Sangiovese and pairs well with a wide variety of foods.
Fruity and richly-flavoured with hints of dark cherry. Velvety with soft, supple tannins and a long finish. Pair with savoury pasta dishes containing olive oil and butter, as well as grilled meat. Serve slightly chilled.
