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.

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.

    La Togata Jacopus Rosso Di Montalcino 2022

    Montalcino is starting to resemble a desert. So says Eric Guido in Vinous. This shifting climate reality has set the stage wherein, for some vintages, minimum Brunello aging requirements can be excessive given the nature of the berries and juice extracted. Rosso di Montalcino, given it less restrictive requirements, offers winemakers an option to balance the wine produced relative to the vintage character.
