We’re moving on to Sangiovese for our next Global Tasting Initiative. I honestly can not say that there are many more grapes I’m interested in exploring today. Of course, I’ve just tasted some fine Syrah, not to mention Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. You know what I mean if you’ve been following my adventures!

Now it’s back to something comfortable and familiar. Sangiovese in all its guises. Chianti, Vino Nobile, Rosso and Brunello di Montalcino, not to mention the myriad of wines from all over the West Coast, will take their bows over the next two weeks.

I’ll be pulling together articles about aging Sangiovese, Super Tuscan wines, a vintage chart for Tuscany, and traveling and dining tips, all brought together under the #GTiSangiovese banner.

That’s what the Global Tasting Initiative is all about! It’s about taking the time to really get to know a grape and then sharing as much as possible with as many as possible. So join me over the next two weeks as we get to know one of my favorite, all around fabulous, food-friendliest grapes around!
