      Sangiovese Terra degli Osci IGT 2017

      Excellent, pure Sangiovese at a top price: ruby red, strong, very typical bouquet of dark berries, tobacco and leather, well structured on the palate with cherry and plum notes, excellent length and elegant, fine fruity finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "This wine definitely took me by surprise. I did not expect the density or the richness that you get with the 2017 Sangiovese from Italy's tiny Molise region. This hot-vintage expression of a grape planted across central Italy (mostly in the Tuscany and Emilia-Romagna regions) offers unique concentration and darkness here in Southern Italy. From afar, it could be mistaken for a Cabernet or a Merlot. The aromas are also atypical. Here, you get stronger elements of black cherry, spice and pencil shavings. This mid-weight wine delivers terrific value." Robert Parker

      "Light raisin character and lots of smoky oak. Full-bodied, round and juicy with velvety tannins." James Suckling

    Things to know about
    Sangiovese
     

    Sangiovese ("Blood of Jupiter"), the big red grape from Tuscany, is probably over 2500 years old. The noble grape is also called Prugnolo ("the plough"). Due to its relatively late budding, Sangiovese has hardly any problems with spring frosts and is also not particularly susceptible to disease. It is of upright growth and not overly hardwoody - two characteristics that make it the ideal grape variety for mechanical processing. Problems are occasionally caused by his very late maturity. Rarely does the harvest begin before the end of September, often even in mid-October. In autumnal periods of bad weather, which can occur in central Italy, the grapes do not ripen fully and produce hard, tannic wine with a high acidity. Sangiovese grapes are thin skinned and susceptible to rot, which can cause problems especially in cool and wet years. Sangiovese wines that are fully successful have a firm tannin structure, are fruity, deep and elegant. They are well suited for ageing in wooden barrels and can benefit from blending with Cabernet Sauvignon.

    In Italy, more than 100,000 hectares are planted with Sangiovese and it is by far the most important and most famous grape variety in the country. The best known wine is Chianti, in which Sangiovese must account for at least 80%. The most valuable representatives of the grape variety are Brunello di Montalcino (always 100% Sangiovese Grosso) and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano (at least 70% Sangiovese, here called Prugnolo Gentile). In Morellino di Scansano (west coast of Tuscany/Maremma) at least 85% Sangiovese content is mandatory.

    The Brunello varieties Sangiovese Grosso and Sangiovese Piccolo produce wines of high concentration in taste and aroma. On top of that, the Sangiovese has proven his ability to play in the international concert of top red varieties in the numerous Super Tuscans. Some winegrowers from central Tuscany (e.g. Fontodi, Isole e Olena, Felsina, Montevertine) also prove that this grape variety can be used to make excellent IGT wines, which are not only very storable, but also achieve the highest ratings every year.

    In Emilia-Romagna large areas are also covered with Sangiovese. It usually produces a fruity, harmonious red wine that can be drunk young, which is excellent with light Italian summer cuisine. Riserva qualities are more full-bodied and, with their deep, complex character, can easily reach the level of the excellent Tuscan Sangiovese wines. Among the best are the Sangiovese di Aprilia, the Sangiovese di Colli Pesaresi and the Sangiovese di Romagna. In the Marche, Sangiovese is the basis of Rosso Piceno and a complementary variety in the outstanding Rosso Conero. In Umbria, the main part of the Rosso di Montefalco is made from the grape variety of the Umbrian grape variety, while the Sagrantino di Montefalco is made from the Sagrantino grape variety.
