Garnet black color. Earthy aromas and flavors of dried citrus and cherry, grass, and clover honey with a supple, tangy, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, brisk finish displaying notes of blackberry, pepper spices, nutskin, and earth with dusty tannins and light oak flavor. A crisp, chewy, fruity sangiovese.

Sangiovese is the most widely planted red variety in Italy and while it is most famously associated with the region of Tuscany, it is a component in wines form several other regions. These include Marche, where Sangiovese is mandatory in two reds, Rosso Piceno and Rosso Conero, as well as Umbria, where Montefalco Rosso is produced primarily from Sangiovese, as is Torgiano Rubesco Riserva.

Sangiovese is also an important component in Emilia-Romanga reds called Sangiovese di Romagna. As with most versions of Sangiovese, these wines have moderate tannins, fresh cherry fruit and tart acidity. Pair them with pork, veal and pastas with marinara or bolognese sauces.
