Italy’s most planted grape, by far. It is suited to grow well in lots of different soils throughout the country and can deliver outstanding results that reflect the different locations beautifully. Consumers know this prolific chameleon grape throughout Tuscany in the form of endless expressions in Chianti, as well as from Brunello di Montalcino (as Sangiovese Grosso) and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano (as Prugnolo Gentile) as well in Morellino and Carmignano etc… (successful anywhere but Bolgheri, eh? Huh. Strange.) It also does very well around the Montefalco region of Umbria, though often blended with Sagrantino and some international grapes.
