Tiamo Sangiovese has a similar profile to the Sangiovese from Chianti (Tuscany region) but since Puglia is a warmer, sunnier region, the wine is richer, fruitier and more full-bodied. It's not too tannic or dry on the palate and has a round, smooth feel—it's easy to drink! Today, the wine is primarily made with the Sangiovese grape (and is labeled as such) and the addition of Primitivo strengthens the fruit profile and weight. A great household wine, a sure palate pleaser and will pair nicely with tomato soup, stews, grilled chicken, burgers and your favorite Italian meal. Enjoy now!
TIAMO, which simply means "I love you" in Italian, is a line of two varietal blends that represent top quality wines from the best growers in their respective regions- Puglia (Italy's heel) & Veneto (Venice region). Owner Mel Master was always excited by the potential of the wines of Southern Italy and eventually went there to put together his own blend. He met an American winemaker who lives in the capital of Lecce and was introduced to the right people. The result was a lovely blend of Sangiovese (unusual in Puglia because very little is grown there) and Primitivo.
