Region Description

The best wines from this noble grape come from Tuscany, particularly in the Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti districts, although it is gaining in popularity in California. Sangiovese grapes make wine that is medium to high in acidity and firm in tannin; the wines can be light to full-bodied depending on where the grapes are grown. The aromas and flavors are fruity, often of a cherry-like quality. Hints of violets or a nutty character can also be present.
