Shop for Chianti and other Sangiovese Wines
Sangiovese is one of Italy's two most important grape varietals, Nebbiolo being the other. This Tuscan grape is the main grape used in Chianti. Wine enthusiasts will also recognize Sangiovese as the primary grape in the stellar Brunello de Montalcino wines of Italy. Today Sangiovese is blended with Cabernet Sauvignon to create "Super Tuscan" wines, which have great depth, concentration, and age-ability. The Sangiovese grape can act to smooth and lighten the intense tannins of the Cabernet.
Enjoy Sangiovese wine with Osso Buco, Braciole, Veal, and even seared fish served over a Tuscan white bean and escarole stew!
