Sangiovese

Tuscany's famous grape means the "blood of Jove" and is best known as the only component of Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino and the main component of the blend Chianti, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and Morellino di Scansano. It is known for fresh fruity flavors of strawberry and a little spiciness, but it readily takes on oaky, even tarry, flavors when aged in barrels. While not as aromatic as other red wine varieties such as Pinot noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah, Sangiovese often has a flavor profile of sour red cherries with earthy aromas and tea leaf notes. Wines made from Sangiovese usually have medium-plus tannins and high acidity, making them ideal for pairing with foods.

    Armilla Brunello di Montalcino 2017

    Dark black cherry color indicating the ripeness of the vintage. Nose is expressive and big with cherry and notes of licorice and dates. Smooth with a great mouth feel and more ripe cherry, toast and mineral on the palate. The finish sticks to the teeth and is long. The balance of the fruit, alcohol, oak and acidity work perfectly together to form a finish that easily lasts 45 seconds. The tannins are ripe, but firm.

  • Colognole Chianti Rufina 2018

    Colognole is based in the small Chianti Rufina region, which accounts for just 3% of total Chianti production (and 40% of this is produced by the Frescobaldi family). Rufina is known for possessing the highest elevation vineyards in Chianti which explains why it is slightly cooler than Classico. The wines are also known to be very age-worthy.

  • Tenuta-Ponte-alle-Ruote-Chianti-Colli-Senesi

    Tenuta Ponte alle Ruote Chianti Colli Senesi 2020

    In the shadow of the famous Towers of San Gimignano, Tuscan estate Le Rote makes a wonderfully charismatic Chianti Colli Senesi from 100% Sangiovese. It has rich, chewy dark fruit, ripe tannins, yet finishes very dry and clean. Remarkably, this wine was aged a full 1.5 years before release, a very rare and determined decision for a non-riserva Chianti — and the results show in the bottle. Smooth, black-cherry and sweet tobacco linger on a faint, pleasant finish that is touched off by just the right hint of oak. Lovely.
