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.

  • Colognole Chianti Rufina 2017

    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.
