Sangiovese is the predominant red grape variety in Tuscany. Sangiovese is a real chameleon grape, which you can encounter in different guises. You will find both dry and sweet still wine, but this grape variety also provides different taste styles within the dry wines, depending on the region and appellation in which the grape is grown, and on the vinification method.

What does the Sangiovese taste like?

Sangiovese wines adapt very much to the climate, but in every wine there are always a number of recognizable characteristics. Sangiovese always has a lively acidity, a very full taste of sour cherries and often some Mediterranean herbs of oregano, thyme, but sometimes eucalyptus. In addition to the acidity, there are also quite a few tannins in sangiovese, which makes it a good addition to your food and allows the wine to age well. Both the acids and the tannins are good preservative substances in the wine. Sangiovese is all about Italy: you can smell recognizable aromas of cherries, figs and cranberries, but sometimes even tomato, earthy notes and hints of coffee, leather and herbs when aged in wood.
