Shades of Sangiovese: its diverse expressions & partnerships
Tue, 2 May 2017, 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM MDT
Among Italy's hundreds of fascinating native grapes, Sangiovese tops the charts as most planted. While it's grown throughout the country, the region of Tuscany is truly Sangiovese's sweet spot. Here, a litany of denominations hang their hats on this noble grape like the famous wines of Chianti, Chianti Classico and Brunello di Montalcino as well as the lesser-known gems of Carmignano and Morellino di Scansano. Each offers its own unique expression. This is your opportunity to savour the nuances of Sangiovese in all its delicious guises and with some its most common blending partners.
