Sangiovese is a dark-berried vine originating from Italy; it’s a thin-skinned grape that tends to linger longer on the vine, taking its time to mature. Characteristically, Sangiovese grapes make medium to full-bodied wines with tannin structure ranging from medium-soft to firm.
Sangiovese is cherished for its high acid, firm tannins and balanced nature. Sangiovese acidity levels tend to lean towards a medium to high ranging from elegant to bitter.
Sangiovese derived wines are branded with dark stone fruit and aromatic flavours of dark cherries, plums, strawberries, cinnamon and vanilla and are often backed with an herbaceous quality of tomato leaf and dried herbs.
