Sangiovese is actually quite scarce outside of Italy. This grape is extremely versatile, easily altering its genetics to fit the environment. There are many different mutations of the variety all over Italy, which result in very different tasting wines. From the delicate floral strawberry aromas of Montefalco Rosso to the intensely dark and tannic wines of Brunello di Montalcino. Sangiovese wines offer a wide range of flavours from very earthy and rustic–as is the case with many Chianti Classico– to round and fruit-forward. Regardless of where it’s grown, it always exhibits cherry flavours with more subtle notes of tomato.

Superbly smooth with lots of leather ending in a harmonious, velvety finish. Flavours of wild berries, black cherry, and spicy plum all combine to present this delicious wine.
Brunello di Montalcino
Wood, plum and blackberry notes on the nose. The palate is round and balanced with hints of wild berries.
Deep ruby red with garnet hues. An intense and complex bouquet with hints of wood. A powerful, well-structured wine.
Rosso di Montalcino
Deep ruby red with violet nuances exuding a flavour that is fresh and harmonious with an excellent balance of tannins.
