If you don’t know what Sangiovese is, it is an assortment of grapes that originate in Italy. Everyone knows it as the main element in the Chanti blend in Tuscany. Although there are winemakers outside of Italy experimenting with this, it is still something that is very special to Italy, especially Tuscany.

There are 14 different versions of Sangiovese. At least there are others trying to imitate it or some other sort of duplication. It was brought to the United States state of California in the 1800s, but to really get an idea of this fantastic assortment of grapes used in the wines of Tuscany.
