Prounounced “San-joh-vay-say,” this Italian wine varietal is Tuscany’s #1 red wine grape. It’s the pistol of Central Italy, with the capability to produce styles ranging from red wines to still wines, sparkling wines to dessert wines, It’s the grape every grape wants to be, with at least 14 Sangiovese clones existing today.

Sangiovese is excellent as a blend, but when used as a sole varietal, it is hard and acidic. Winemakers tend to blend this varietal with Bordeaux grapes, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, and even white wine grapes, sometimes Trebbiano and Malvasia.

  • Last night a big rainstorm was predicted to roll in.  This it did, but we ... Ricks 2010 Torrione Petrolo (Sangiovese) and enjoyed that with our main course, and because we were starting to feel the affects of the wine, we shared two glasses of their high-end Amarone della Valpolicella ($39 a glass).  Needless to say the wines were great, the ...

  • Arnaldo-Caprai Montefalco Rosso 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Trick cherry syrup and rose petal aromas hanging with baking spice and a hint of ripe blueberry. Darker and richer on the palate and showing powerful structure and medium body, the fruit is lighter with cranberry, cherry and raspberry notes to start with more tannins washing in behind the fruit and settling in the mouth.

  • Sonoma Wine Country Weekend is an event filled with terrific wine and food from ... Syrah, Zinfandel, Cinsault, Sangiovese, Muscats, Viognier, Dolcetto, Alicante Bouschet, Petite Sirah, and more. Taken as a piece the ACORN wines are remarkably balanced, acid rich, food friendly offerings that age well. This vintage of Medley fits that bill to a... Read More

  • RCKR, Thanks! But you did give me an idea. I've never actually developed my ... European varietals - like sangiovese, tempranillo, barbera, gruner veltliner, lemberger, etc. BIG AL - Trader Joe's over here cannot sell wine. They're only allowed to sell those horrendous non-alcoholic "wine products."  We can only buy from wine shops. But there i... Read More

  • Hi Folks!This site was really great several years ago helping me track down Corsican reds here in NYC (I'm in Staten Island.) Many of my friends, and myself included, are interested in very good wines (mostly reds)  at the lowest possible price. There really are many such wines out there if you look hard enough! For example, several years ago a ... Read More

  • Fattoria I Veroni Chianti Riserva 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Soft red fruit on the nose with a hint of floral notes and some raspberry preserves. This has nice spice on the mouth with milk chocolate strawberry and cherry notes, chewy tannins, dusty earth and an okay smoky finish. Read More

  • Fattoria I Veroni Chianti Riserva 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Dense mineral earthiness, plum, black cherry and strawberry on the nose. Chocolate and black olive on the palate, good fresh acidity and dusty fruit notes of cherry and raspberry. This is quite earthy and has a touch of salinity towards the finish. Read More

  • I am partial to Italian wines. It must be a cultural thing, as my parents were immigrants. Last week, I was introduced to Il Poggio Sangiovese Rubicone 2008 at my Italian conversation group. It was love at first sip ... I bought a case. Life is too short ... drink fine wines which can be bought a good price. There are many treaures out there wa...

  • What is a 100% Sangiovese wine? Preferably from 2006.

  • The fact that there is nary a bottle of Canaletto, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo to be bought anywhere, says it all. At around $10 a bottle, it probably deserves more than a 3 out of 5 rating but what do I know? I just like drinking it when I can get it.
