Sangiovese di Romagna is probably Emilia-Romagna’s best known wine, though for a long time likely for the wrong reasons. More on that in a bit. The story goes that the name of the grape originated from Sant’Angelo di Romagna at a Capuchin monastery. A noble guest was visiting the monastery and remarked at the quality of the wines made from the hillside Collis Jovis vineyards. When he asked what the wine was called, the name Sanguis di Jovis (Blood of Jupiter) was made up on the spot. From there it evolved from Sangue di Giove and finally to Sangiovese in the 18th century. Its popularity through the decades gave Sangiovese di Romagna the distinction of becoming the region’s first DOC in 1967. 

The large production zone stretches from the hills east of Bologna to the coast of Rimini, with various subzones inbetween. To be labeled as Sangiovese di Romagna, the wine must contain at least 85% Sangiovese and up to 15% of other grapes grown in the production zone. There are four styles Read more »

  • Bolla Sangiovese Sangiovese di Romagna 2007

    Snoothrank:

    I was indeed a wine newbie as I am now when I drank this wine. I instantly fell in love with it because of the intense fruity flavor and the tannins and acid were so in balance it was extremely easy to drink. I felt this vintage, the 2007, beat the 2008 hands down. Read More

  • San Valentino Sangiovese di Romagna Superior Scabi 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Exquisite bouquet of strawberry, vanilla and leather this offering has the 100% Sangiovese, light bodied, persona. Incredible balance and smoothness with a ridiculous depth and clarity. It is easy to see why this wine won the Gambero Rosso price/quality award for 4 years running. A part of me simply doesnt want to let people know how good th... Read More

  • Bolla Sangiovese Sangiovese di Romagna 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Good value...but a bit young. Needs to age a bit. Definitely needs to breathe before drinking, probably should be with dinner and not just for a casual glass of wine. Read More

  • Sangiovese di Romagna Poderi Dal Nespoli 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Si presenta limpido anche se poco trasparente, di colore rubino granato, abbastanza consistente, gli archetti tendono a restringersi. Allolfatto è intenso, complesso (presenza di profumi secondari e terziari), abbastanza fine (spicca lalcolicità) e si percepiscono le spezie, frutti evoluti, cuoio, tostatura, etereo, minerale. Al successivo respi... Read More

  • Terragens 2004

    Snoothrank:

    I go more by the "yum" factor - while I am not a fan of these dryish Italians, this one had a nice smooth finish and was not harsh or bitter. I would rate this 3 Yums on the 1-5 Yum factor scale. Serve with red sauces and a nice pasta. Read More

  • Fattoria Zerbina Sangiovese di Romagna Pietramora Superiore Riserva 2001

    Snoothrank:

    Maybe Pietramora has too much alcohol, but that it is often well balanced, i tasted it with many Brunello di Montalcino and generally it demonstrated a very high class like those, with beautiful cherry flavours as Sangiovese might have and it has such a very long life too, don't miss it Read More
