Summary

Primary Grape

Sangiovese

The name Sangiovese comes from the Latin sanguis Jovis, meaning "blood of Jove." Its color mirrors its etymology: The wines range from brick red to copper-tinged, and can be quite concentrated. Although the grape is originally from southern Italy, the central region of Tuscany boasts the best Sangiovese wines in the world. It is the most widely planted grape variety in the country.
