The Sangiovese grape is one of the most famous, important and widespread red varieties on the Italian peninsula and has become a symbol of Italian culture throughout the world. It is a very old variety, whose roots lie in the Apennine territory between the regions of Romagna, Tuscany, Umbria and Marche. Its central role in the Italian wine scene is reflected in the great variety of biotypes that still exist, in the immense heritage of local traditions and in the more than 50 denominations of origin that allow for its use. From the most classic types to the modern Supertuscan, this grape variety can give life to very different expressions, which are always characterised by good freshness, structure, elegance and longevity. In Tuscany, for example, it is the key player in wines that have become true international stars, in Romagna it generally takes on a fresher and more versatile profile, while in Umbria it is warm, expressive and generous. Regardless of how it is presented, however, it always demonstrates great character, backbone, elegant freshness and territorial typicality.
