The Instacart guide to Sangiovese
The Sangiovese grape is Italy's most widely planted red grape variety. It is used to make a range of wines, including the ever-popular Chianti. Italians love Sangiovese across its native country since it is not typically found outside the boot-shaped peninsula. Sangiovese vineyards can be found planted in Emilia-Romagna and Puglia, but the grapes grow extremely well in the warm Mediterranean region of Tuscany.
This thick-skinned grape takes its time to ripen and mature on the vine before harvest. It has a summer growing season and is harvested late in September and early October. While many Sangiovese grapes across the world are grown in Italy, California and Australia feature many vineyards.
Sangiovese is a medium-bodied, highly acidic wine with high levels of tannin. Its flavors range from rustic to fruity, and the wines can have savory characteristics, depending on the vineyard locations. In wines made from Sangiovese, you may experience flavors of cherry, plum, and red currant, as well as smoky flavors, such as peppery tones, sweet tobacco, and black tea.
