Notable Facts Sangiovese mutates easily, and therefore has many clones - the most notable being Brunello, of Brunello di Montalcino fame. Sangiovese is a slow growing, late ripening grape. It has high acidity and a thin skin, which makes it difficult to master. If not cared for correctly, the grape will produce a wine overly acidic with unripe fruit flavors. When pruned judiciously and picked at the right time, Sangiovese creates wine with delicious structure and fruit - and a mean backbone of acidity. This acidity makes it an ideal match to a multitude of foods, particularly of Italian origin, like tomato-based dishes, pastas and pizzas.
