For many of us who enjoy the sensuous profile of a bold, flavourful red wine may already know to seek an Amarone di Valpolicella, a Veneto Region Italian wine that consists of a blend of Corvina, small amounts of Corvinone and sometimes Rondinella grapes. You may be even more impressed with discovering how this amazing unique style of wine is made.
Considered the dominant grape of central Italy, Sangiovese produces everything from everyday drinking to premium wines in a variety of styles. It might surprise one to know that Sangiovese is actually quite scarce outside of Italy. In terms of world plantings, Sangiovese is less abundant than many other popular grown grape varieties.
