The Sangiovese grape is the most widely planted red grape variety, particularly in central Italy, with 71,500 hectares under vine. Sangiovese is often referred to as the Tuscan grape. Wines made purely with Sangiovese tend to be light-bodied, high in acidity, fairly tannic with cherry, plum, dried herbs, and peppery notes. Savgiovese's natural characteristics make it incredibly suitable for oak ageing.
