The grape varieties
One of the oldest Italian varieties (blood of Jupiter / sangue di Giove), also cultivated in Etruscan times. It is the most widely planted red grape variety in Italy, especially in Tuscany, Umbria and Emilia Romagna. There are many types of Sangiovese, but the two main divisions are: Sangiovese Grosso, more prized is also less planted, almost entirely in the area of Montalcino (SI), where it is called Prugnolo Gentile; Sangiovese Piccolo is the most common and is known by various synonyms depending on the area, among which is Morellino de Scansano. It is known for wines of intense ruby red color, tannins, good body, harmony and a nice bitterness: it shows fruity aromas when young, but after aging they become noticeably more refined. Often mixed with other wines to add color, harmony and aromas.
The origin of this variety of "black" berries has always been uncertain, it is often confused with Sangiovese, probably because of the existence of the Tuscan town of the same name. Those who have studied it, such as Molon (1906) classified it as a Sangioveti. Today, it is certain that the 2 varieties have nothing in common. It is most often cultivated in Abruzzo, Marche and other areas of the central / southern Adriatic.
It has many names, such as Montepulcian of Abruzzo, Primatice, Cordisco etc. Today, thanks to the excellent work of some producers and winegrowers, Montepulciano has grown to become one of the high quality red wines. Montepulciano prefers a hot and dry climate with a soaked sun exposure to guarantee a good and regular ripening of the grapes. When vinified on its own, the wine is ensured to be of high quality, good for aging while at the same time improving wines of other varieties when blended and can provide similar aromas to some wines. from Bordeaux .
A variety of Bordeaux in the Medoc and Graves areas, it is the most renowned variety in the whole world for wines of great quality and longevity. It is often mixed with Cabernet Franc and Merlot, other well-known varieties of Bordeaux. In Italy there are many versions, both in the pure form and in mixtures with other red varieties. It has a great capacity to adapt to many climatic conditions and winemaking techniques, while maintaining it well-known characteristics and expressing its "terroir". It is able to produce a wine of intense color, rich in tannins and aromatic substances, and a long aging potential thanks to its great structure. It is well suited for long macerations and aging in wooden barrels, especially French oak which allow the wine in time to express complex, charming bouquets.
