Winemaker's Notes

This Sangiovese exhibits fresh aromas of woodland berries, violets, tea leaves and sweet spice. Deliciously smooth, plush and juicy on the palate with loads of ripe fruit.

Di Majo Sangiovese is recommended with brick-oven pizzas, chorizo and granular cheeses such as Parmigiano-Reggiano or aged Gouda.

Learn About Sangiovese

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs.
