Sangiovese

Studies indicate that the origins of the sangiovese variety are to be found in Tuscany and that its name probably comes from the words sanguis Jovis (Jupiter's blood). That first variety, which someone decided to honour by naming it after the King of the Gods, evolved over time in different ways leading to the numerous clones we know today and the variety of wines they create with significantly different characters. The traditional style of sangiovese wines expertly combines sweetness and bitterness, producing an aromatic profile of cherries and herbs which many people automatically associate with Italian wine. Styles more usually developed for international markets taste of blackberries and black plums and have a more noticeable mark of new wood.
