Practifi Sangiovese Release Notes

Sangiovese is a red Italian wine grape variety that derives its name from the latin for Blood of Jupiter the Roman king of the gods. Sangiovese is the base grape for a number of popular Italian wines such as Chianti and the wines are usually lightly colored with high acid, light body and moderate to high tannin. Sangiovese wines offer a wide range of tastes from very earthy and rustic to round and fruit-forward.

A savory Sangiovese pairs well with herbs and tomatoes whereas a Sangiovese with high tannins will work perfectly with rich roasted meat, cured sausages and hard cheeses.

The Sangiovese grape is a bit of a chameleon with many different varieties resulting in very different tasting wines. Likewise our Sangiovese release has a bit of something for everyone.

Practifi Sangiovese will be deployed starting from 30 April 2019.
