About This Wine:
Italy's 20 wine regions correspond to 20 administrative regions. Each area’s cuisine reflects its indigenous wines, and vice-versa. The 36 designated quality zones are located in 13 regions, with most concentrated in Tuscany and Piedmont.
Tuscany is probably the best-known wine region in Italy, as it’s the home of Chianti Classico, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. Tuscan vintners have led a renaissance in Italian winemaking during the last few decades, changing old rules to accommodate the crafting of even better wines. One such rule now allows for the varietal name to be included on the label.
Meaning “Blood of Jove” or Jupiter, Sangiovese is the Chianti grape par excellence, responsible in Tuscany for the region’s finest wines. The vintner for Sansedoni suggests pairing the 2019 vintage with a regional favorite: wild garlic and ricotta ravioli with lamb soup.
