Style: Sangiovese is the go-getter grape of Italy, grown in virtually every province. In Tuscany (Central Italy) where it originated, endless sunshine and well drained mineral soils push it to sublime heights in wines like Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti. Chianti is a blend of different grapes where Sangiovese plays a supporting role, whereas unblended—as it is in Brunello—it provides an intense, vibrant richness.

Selection International Italian Sangiovese has a wonderful bright red cherry character overlaying strawberry notes with hints of violets and white pepper. It has medium body and a long, wonderfully smooth, tannic finish; livened by a zing of acidity and toasty oak and as always, a touch of the Tuscan earth.

Harvest conditions: Brix 21.8°, pH 3.55, TA 5.00g/l

Similar Styles: Selection Chianti, Selection Estate Castellina Supertuscan de Siena

Food Pairings: Wonderfully food-friendly, Sangiovese is great with veal Parmigiana, pasta with garlic and oil, pizza, blue cheese, Fontina cheese, and fruits such as cherries, figs, plums, and raspberries.

Sweetness Code: 0 (dry) | Body: Medium | Alcohol by Volume: 12% | Oak: 60 gram Toasted Oak

Aging: Easy to drink young, this wine will open up and express much of its character after six months of aging.
