Sangiovese

This is the purple grape most extensively grown in Italy. There are numerous hypotheses about the origin of the name, the most accredited being the one that considers it to be derived from "sangue dei gioghi" or "blood of the hills". It is impossible to establish the place of origin with any certainty, since its history is lost in the mists of time and there is no certain information earlier than the 16th century. Analysis of the DNA reveals that it originated from crossing the Calabrese di Montenuovo, a varietal that is now practically extinct, with the Ciliegiolo.
Its ideal growing region is in the Apennines of central and southern Italy, where it yields wines of great refinement that have become international icons. Attempts have been made to cultivate the varietal in the wine-growing countries of the New World, but the results are a far cry, qualitatively, from those achieved in Tuscany and Emilia-Romagna. The ripening time is average and various training methods are used, including the Spurred Cordon, Guyot, Free Cordon and head-training.
