Sangiovese wine is produced from a dark-skinned red grape variety that is robust and juicy. This is one of the most popular and most exported Italian types of vino, with a delicious and pleasantly fruity flavour.
Here at the Melbourne Wine Store, we are proud to carry a premium selection of labels from all over the world. If you enjoy Italian vino, browse through our range of Sangiovese wines online today – we highly recommend that you try this delectable drop.
This kind of grape is used in the production of several kinds of Italian vino – including drops produced in the Annone Valley of the Chianti Classico region, along with Brunello di Montalcino. It is widely planted throughout Italy, particularly in Tuscany, Emilia-Romagna, Marche, Umbria, Abruzzo and Lazio.
How to enjoy Sangiovese wine
This variety pairs well with a range of dishes and cuisines, making it an ideal accompaniment for your next meal or next big special occasion. It also makes a great gift for that special someone. It has a high tannic structure which makes it ideal for flavouring and aging.
It is delicious on its own and best consumed young. However, you can also try to age it – as the best varieties age beautifully. If you don’t have the right conditions to store them in, it will be difficult to get the right results, so make sure that you find the right type of storage.
What is the difference between Sangiovese and Chianti wine?
Sangiovese generally refers to a specific variety of red grape, while Chianti refers to the vino that it produces. However, Sangiovese grapes are used to make more than just Chianti, which is made primarily in the region of Tuscany. These grapes are actually used in the production of all sorts of Italian vino – from rosé to Vin Santo and Super Tuscan varieties.
