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.

  • Terragens 2004


    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


    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
