Sangiovese is the main red grape of Tuscany and it appears throughout the region in everything from 100% Sangiovese wines to minor roles supporting modern-styled wines made of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In Chianti, wines must contain at least 70% Sangiovese. It’s easy to see why this versatile and appealing grape is Italy’s most widely planted. The thin-skinned Sangiovese typically makes wines that are light in colour with bright acidity, red cherry flavours and a nice herbal tone.

The grape blends well with international varieties, especially Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, which achieve wonderful ripeness in the Tuscan sun. These wines have depth, roundness and warmth.
