Made in a modern, Super Tuscan style, our Sangiovese Riserva is predominantly crafted from the world famous Brunello clone of Sangiovese from Montalcino to create a wine that is smoky, savory and warming. A touch of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot enhances the dark cherry flavors.

Type of Wine: Medium bodied red with high acidity and moderate tannins.
Origin: Sangiovese roughly translates from Latin as " Sanguis Jovis” or “Blood of Jove". Jove was the Supreme God in Roman mythology. It is the principal grape grown in the Tuscany region of Italy. Three clones of Sangiovese are the most sought after. The first clone, Sangioveto or Grosso is used for Chianti. The second clone, Brunello is used to make Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino and the third Prugnolo, for Vino Nobile di Montepulciano wines.
