SANGIOVESEBlack grape Cultivar, grown mainly in Abruzzo (which produces Montepulciano d'Abruzzo), Marche, Umbria, Puglia. It is one of the most important grapes in central Italy with the Sangiovese. Perhaps the native land of Montepulciano d'Abruzzo (the name in full) is Torre de Passeri (PE). The name "Montepulciano" is the "residue" of a secular confusion between this grape, Sangiovese and Prugnolo kind, grapes that is the basis of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. The character with the increased spread of Tuscan grape, is the confusion between it and grape Abruzzo. Only in 1875 was documenting an exact description of this ampelographic. Montepulciano, along with Sangiovese, represents the best tradition "red" in central Italy. Montepulciano has a bunch of average size and compactness, almost always winged, pyramid-shaped or conical. It ripens in advanced age (usually the first weeks of October).

SANGIOVESESangiovese (with Barbera) is one of Italy's most popular grape varieties (cultivated areas cover l `11% of the national area under vines); Romagna is grown by up to Campania and is traditionally the most popular grape in Tuscany. Sign in a blend of hundreds of wines, among them some of the most prestigious Italian wines: Chianti and Chianti Classico, Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Sagrantino di Montefalco and many other lesser-known but equally valid, which Morellino di Scansano and Sangiovese Romagna. It probably originated in Tuscany (if known since Etruscan times around at the eighth century BC), whose name may derive from "Blood of Jupiter", a witness of old link between wine and divinity. You pay less vague theory highlights the `origin of the name from San Giovanni Valdarno. The wine supply of capital Florence in the Renaissance was Castles of Valdarno di Sopra, built in territories conquered by the Florentines few centuries before. In 1716, the Grand Duke Cosimo III de Medici `issued a notice to regulate the protection of wines of Chianti, Pomino, and Valdarno Carmignano di Sopra. In general we talk about Sangiovese, but in reality this period will be determined by a large number of varieties (or clones) in which it is differentiated through the centuries and in different territories. In Tuscany, for example if they are two large families: Sangiovese Grosso, which includes among other varieties Brunello (used for the production of `namesake wine) and Prugnolo Gentile (used for the production of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano), and Sangiovese Small, used largely devoid of regione.Non is of interest to note that the Brunello is a derivation of Sangiovese, a mutant specifically identified by Ferruccio Biondi Santi, at the beginning of the last century, in its hold on Greppo, Montalcino, in a plot mixture of maple trees and vineyards. Brunello has become among the stars of the Italian viticulture against by the nephew, Franco Biondi Santi, after the wine was offered at a lunch famous by Queen Elizabeth, at a lunch at Buckingam Palace, the President Saragat in sight Journal . For this reason it is difficult to give a complete description of wine with them, which certainly has some common constants (good tannins and high acidity), but may vary from red wine to cheaper qualities of Brunello, wine of high value product in the area di Montalcino; here, in `unique habitat of the hills montalcinesi produces a red among the most appreciated by the world body, the fullness of taste, elegance and aging capacity. Sangiovese in recent years knows a great popularity in California, thanks to the international success of wines called super expanding. From Napa Valley has spread in more areas Californian wine from Sonoma County to San Luis Obispo.

For us, the winemaking implies to put itself on hand of the earth, of the vineyard, of the wine in wine cellar,
to make all things that, in several phases, the elements ask and obey without saying a word......
