Sangiovese is a red grape grown throughout Italy, but perhaps achieves its greatest expression in Tuscany. It produces medium to full bodied wines with very high acidity and shows Morello cherry, savoury herb, dried tomato and spice character.
With its characteristic high acidity and robust tannins Sangiovese demands food to show at its best. Perfect with roast meats, game, meaty pasta dishes and hard cheeses. It also has an affinity with any tomato based dishes.
