Taste three Sangioveses this Friday at Vino

This week, Vino is honoring Sangiovese! Known by the Etruscans as “Sanguis Jovis” (literally “Blood of Jove”), literary reference to Sangiovese didn’t appear until 1722. Today Sangiovese is renowned as a staple of many Tuscan wines, including most famously as a major component of Chianti. There are 14 clones of Sangiovese, of which Brunello is perhaps the most highly regarded. Tuscany’s hot, dry climate means Sangiovese grapes are slow to ripen, which can result in quantity at the expense of quality. It takes a truly skilled wine-maker to produce a fine wine from Sangiovese — fortunately some of the finest are at Vino! Taste these three diverse examples of the classic Tuscan variety this Friday:

Vino Rosato 2007 Guido Gualandi

Chianti Classico Riserva 2003 Carobbio

Brunello di Montalcino 2003 Tenuta di Sesta
